Leslye’s world is language arts for business. Her career has taken her from educator to executive to writer. She crafts strategy, messaging, and content for companies large and small in a range of industries. Her work includes blogs, video scripts, case studies, websites, and anything else that needs articulation. “Sweet Crude,” a documentary Leslye helped write and produce, won multiple awards at film festivals worldwide. And her marketing copy has won some awards too.
