Ever since Lesley was a little kid, she felt a deep personal connection to nature. It’s always been her spiritual home- the forest, the lake, the trees, the sky, the animals. The woods by her house were where she went to feel safe, connected, creative, peaceful.
Lesley has also ALWAYS been a seeker, wanting to understand the bigger picture, digging down into the deeper root cause of it all. She has always been a connector, an “old soul”, empath, sensitive to energies, seeker of deeper connections and meaning, the one who people turn to to confide in for advice, guidance and processing, asking the hard questions and holding space with empathy.
