She is a multi-media journalist, and her daily tasks include scriptwriting, videography, and editing news packages. 

Born in Youngstown, Ohio, she is a proud Valley native and Hubbard High School graduate. Leslie graduated from Youngstown State University (YSU) with a Bachelor of Arts in journalism.
