“Music makes the world go ‘round…and it brings people together.” Leslie’s world revolves around music and the arts.

With a background in marketing + public relations – Leslie became a programmer at a small but stellar southern Ontario performing arts centre in 2007. After more than 10 years of music and cultural programming in addition to PR and events, she now finds herself in the world of marketing/communications for the goldmining industry.

Knowing how much she loves the arts and live performance, Leslie keeps herself busy with music-related interests on the side. She is a new board member to Summerfolk (Owen Sound), part of the Mudtown Records family, presenting the multi-arts winter fest Lupercalia (Owen Sound), and assistant producer to the best fest of BC’s northern west coast, Atlin Arts + Music Festival.

Leslie lives in Collingwood, Ontario with her guitar-playing carpenter husband, and two amazing kids: Jonas and Aria.
