Leslie, a Chino Hills native who graduated from the University of California, Riverside, has deep roots in the Golden State. She joined ABC7 after spending several years at KUSI News in San Diego, where she worked as weekday morning weather anchor and host. There she dove in to the world of weather, working with Weather Channel founder John Coleman. During that time, Leslie applied to Mississippi State University to earn her broadcast meteorology certificate and aims to make meteorology and climate learning a lifelong process.
Leslie also held dual roles at Bakersfield NBC affiliate KGET, where she worked as a reporter and weekend weather anchor.
Prior to that, Leslie interned as a news writer and producer at CBS2/KCAL 9 in Los Angeles, where she was encouraged to pursue an on-air career.
Leslie is happy she made the switch to being in front of the camera and enjoys her exciting, fast-paced career in broadcast.
When not working, Leslie enjoys reading, writing, dining, playing indoor soccer, hiking and lots of beach activities, including surfing and scuba diving.
