Upon graduation from Crestwood High School, Leslie went to Emory University where she received degrees in English and Early Childhood Education. Leslie enjoyed a successful career in technology. This was defined by her work with RARE Hospitality, and more recently as Vice President of Marketing for World Fiber Technologies. Leslie was extremely caring, considerate and a committed friend.
