Leslie’s journey started at 17 when a high school friend asked her what she wanted for her birthday. She asked for a Rosary – which is unusual for a teenager but Leslie felt such closeness to our mother at that age. She will share the role that her Catholic faith, the Blessed Mother, and St. Therese have played in guiding her in her life. Leslie is originally from New Orleans, but moved to Memphis after Hurricane Katrina. Currently, she is the Dean of Students/Director of EC/School Counselor at St. George’s Independent Schools-Memphis Campus.
