From a young age, Leslie has been fascinated with hair. When she decided to embark on her cosmetology career, it came naturally. Leslie graduated from Gene Juarez Academy in Seattle, Washington, at the top of her class. She thoroughly enjoyed her time there and received several awards. She felt extremely fortunate to be accepted onto the Student Ambassador team and loved all of the community outreach events she was able to be a part of, as a member of that elite team. This also allowed her the opportunity of mentoring new students and working alongside the educators.

Upon graduating, she chose to receive advanced training at an Elite Salon in the Seattle area. This is where she was able to really hone in on her skills and expand her creativity.

Once she completed her advanced training, she decided to work at an all Framesi salon in Edmonds, Wa. She absolutely loves the results she receives with Framesi and enjoys all of the continuing education they offer! Leslie strongly feels like there's never an end to education in this industry, so she prides herself on taking classes & staying up to date with new trends and techniques.

After being a stylist for almost 4 years in Seattle, Leslie and her husband, Devin decided it was time to move back to her hometown of Cumming, Ga. She was thrilled to find J Thomas Salon & continue working with Framesi! She has quickly fallen in love with her new "home" and really enjoys this amazing team.

"I can tell that everyone here truly cares about the guests & exudes teamwork."

"Being a stylist isn't just about hair for me. I genuinely enjoy connecting with my guests and forming relationships with them."
