Leslie is founder and President of Right To Health. A certified PA, navy veteran, and mother of two, Leslie is a passionate social justice advocate focused on healing those affected by everyday racism. In 2006, Leslie founded Right To Health out of frustration that her primarily preventive cardiology work was not very accessible to those needing it most: marginalized communities and people of color. Since then, Leslie has counseled a health events and become a notable figure in antiracist facilitation and mediation. The daughter of two civil rights and social justice activists, Leslie was born and raised in northwest Ohio, moving to Portland in 1994. Her eclectic interests include: music production and performance, martial arts, the mind-body discipline connection, precision and distance swimming, inquiry into intercultural communication, and the peace process. Oh, and Leslie recently climbed Mt. Fuji. Scratch that off her bucket list.
