Leslie is an Adult Educator and a Patient Education Specialist at an academic health sciences centre. She holds certificates in Applied Mindfulness Meditation and Mindfulness Based Group Practice, and integrates mindfulness practices into her work and personal life.

In 2021, she co-founded The Inside Outside Retreat Centre with Winifred Hunsburger, a certified Courage & Renewal® Facilitator. Their seasonal and nature-based retreats are held in a variety of indoor, outdoor and online settings, offering participants the protected time and space to step back from daily life, renew their spirits and move forward with integrity and grace.

She is committed to honouring the history this land bears witness to, by responding to the 94 Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, and by walking lightly on the Earth.
