Born on Sunset Boulevard, Leslie grew up playing violin, performing plays, musicals, dancing and singing in choirs. She studied at the American School of Dance, majored in Theatre at UC San Diego (performing classics by Lorca, Moliere, Shakespeare) and graduated UC Berkeley. In San Francisco she was a voice actor in the vintage radio suspense show, “The Theatre of the Mind.”
Leslie is grateful for a career in Madison Avenue advertising and commercial film production that took her around the country and abroad. She has lived in San Francisco, New York, in London, and did a stint on a kibbutz.
Prior to joining the Group Rep, Leslie worked on marketing GRT's Awake and Sing, and props for Lost in Yonkers. She’s been a fan since her daughters first performed here in 2013. Leslie recently returned to the boards on stage (and as the Property Master) in The Man Who Came to Dinner. She is on the production team for In My Mind's Eye, and is delighted to be part of the talent here.
