Lesley spent five years as an elementary special education and Kindergarten teacher in Federal Way. She decided to shift career paths and is now pursuing a Master’s in Nutrition and Dietetics from Bastyr University. She loves turning students into food detectives because it combines her love of food with her passion for education!
When not studying or teaching, Lesley is very busy chasing after and cooking with her 2-1/2 year old daughter, Juliette. Juliette already knows all about spices and how to use her knife blade to smash a clove of garlic.
