Leslie is passionate about social issues and is actively involved in her community as well as several local and global non-profit organizations. Three years ago, Leslie was given a vision to provide a safe place for writers & songwriters to find their original voice which led to the development of a songwriting community and Nashville-based 501-C3 Non-Profit, The Fold. The Fold is the perfect marriage of her two passions, music & non-profit.
In 2017, Leslie and her husband Thomas began the process of expanding their family through the miracle of adoption. Their son, Judah was born in November 2017 and they welcomed him home in March of 2018. It is a beautiful story that they love to tell whenever given the opportunity. Leslie, Thomas and Judah live in Franklin, TN.
