I have known Leslie for 18 months through our membership in Asheville Toastmasters. I have watched her win four speech contests, including 2nd place at Toastmasters International's statewide contest. As our current president, she demonstrates weekly her excellent speaking and leadership skills. The club has grown in size and quality under her guidance. Her speeches typically are about her deep and sincere commitment to coaching people, especially young people. She is a remarkable woman!
