Lesley was born and raised outside of Indianapolis, Indiana, but has longed to live in Florida her entire life! She attended Ball State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Interpersonal Communication Studies in 2017. She was involved in many activities during undergrad, which inspired her to pursue a career in student affairs.

In her spare time, she loves to craft (especially with the Cricut) and volunteer at local dog shelters – it’s her dream to rescue greyhounds!
