Profile

A technical sales and marketing specialist for 10 years, Leslie "retired" from Cisco Systems to stay home with her two daughters, 6 and 8. After 5 years of research, self-study and implementing her holistic nutrition practices on her growing family and friends, Leslie decided to turn her passion into her business and became a certified Nutrition and Wellness Consultant, starting her own business in 2007, Finish Line Nutrition LLC. Leslie's mission was to meet the unique needs of families, athletes and all those in between with effective and efficient nutritional roadmaps that would enable her clients to live healthier, happier and more productive lives. As an All American Lacrosse player, World Cup Lacrosse Coach and Olympic Torchbearer, Leslie "rediscovered" triathlon after a 23 year hiatus as a means to cross train her way out of running overuse injuries. In 2007, after two years back in the sport, Leslie was sponsored by www.Trisports.com and stayed with Team Trisports through 2010. As a 2009 USAT HM All American and passionate nutritionist, Leslie worked with the CoreDiet Nutrition and QT2 before moving on to pursue a different career.
