After 4 years at the ANCS middle campus, she’s excited to begin her second year as a 5th-grade teacher at the elementary campus.
Prior to her becoming an education professional, Lesley was a medical editor working for both Emory University and the American Cancer Society for over 15 years.
Lesley is the proud mom of two boys, ages 17 and 15. Her older son is on the autism spectrum and it’s through her journey with him and his experience that she became interested in special education and working with these amazing kids.

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her boys, traveling, live music, and attempting to solve true crime mysteries.
