Style / / Affirming - Attentive - Present - Vulnerable
Our stories are the core of our being. Far too often, we aren’t given the space or audience to truly tell our stories. I’m here to help you write your story when the words won’t tumble out by themselves.
Storytelling with me feels like a conversation either in your favorite spot, a coffee shop, or even in your home. I want to truly hear your voice, feel your story, and capture your authentic self-- tears, laughter, and everything in between. I’m willing to be vulnerable about my own story to help create the space for yours. Let’s tell your story together!
Storytelling is a great gift for weddings, engagements, anniversaries, graduations, or any new life stage!
"Leslie is a beam of light that is a joy to work with! She highlights the beauty, honesty, and happiness of LGBTQ people and our stories. Her blog was the first blog I told the entirety of my story online and I was so honored to be part of the queer voices highlighted. Gorgeous people!"
"Leslie asks questions straight to the heart, with loving eyes, and no judgement- 'Who are you? Where have you been? What brings you joy?' For me, her skills as an interviewer and storyteller, helped me appreciate the overarching narratives in my life, embracing that which should be celebrated and making space for that which brings grief. It’s amazing how telling your story can feel holy, and can generate healing. I think this world would be a better place if we all had Leslie’s in our life, for she asks the heart questions, and it always ends with beauty.
“Leslie. Thank you. Thank you for making me realize I have so much I want to say and maybe even things worth saying. I didn’t realize I had so much to say. Thank you! I feel so good about my story. It was a ton of fun. Leslie, you’re great at what you do.”
