Leslie is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame where she met her husband, Matt. After living in Chicago (and its suburbs) for 10 years, they relocated to DFW and have lived in Richardson since 2016. She is a stay-at-home mama to two boys (May 2014 and February 2016), one girl (July 2018), and a crazy pup. She spends her free time running, reading, cooking, and adding projects to her home improvement list. You can catch her with a cup of coffee in her hands (or being reheated in her microwave) all day long.
