Born and raised in Newark, NJ, Leslie grew up in a home plagued with alcoholism and domestic violence. As child she was beset with feelings of abandonment, loneliness and fear.  This combined with neglect and abuse resulted in her struggle with low self-esteem.  Having had that experience propels Leslie in her mission. “My mission is to uplift, encourage, and empower, those who have been broken, burdened and bruised by the circumstances of life.  My prayer is that through the message, you will be brought to a place of healing. This healing comes only from our beloved Jesus Christ.  If you open your heart to Him, you will be touched by His mighty love. If you trust Him you will be loved like never before; and thus you’re healing and joy will come”.

Leslie hosts a weekly online show, Sister Circle Talk Show For Women. She facilitates Sister Circle Prayer Network; where women from all over the globe gather for daily prayer. Leslie just penned her first book Sisters With SASS, which will be available for sale this summer.
