There she dove in to the world of weather, working with Weather Channel founder John Coleman. Leslie has a broadcast meteorology certificate from Mississippi State University.
In December 2017, she completed her Bachelors of Science degree in Meteorology from Mississippi State University. She aims to make meteorology and climate learning a lifelong process.
