Leslie was born and raised in Northern California and shortly after graduating from college; she decided to relocate to Boulder – which offered the same outdoor activities that she grew up with. Her career path in public accounting started at a local firm and then 8 years ago, she adventured out and started her own practice. While in public accounting, not only did she enjoy crunching numbers, she developed a strong interest & enjoyment in helping business owners and employees. With the decision to transition from public accounting to industry, she is looking very forward to being able to continue doing what she enjoys most about her career – helping others. Her favorite activities include: being a mother of two boys, hiking, reading, and weekend getaways.
