Director of Development, Philanthropy
In collaboration with colleagues and the SELC board, Leslie connects individual donors to the work of SELC, growing our network of supporters in the Southeast and beyond. She partners with state directors on the strategic development of the supporter base, particularly in South Carolina and Virginia, and works with board members on donor outreach and communications.
She came to SELC with more than a decade of experience in fundraising for national environmental organizations, and, as a lifelong Southerner, is excited to focus on protecting this region and tackling climate change in and through the South.
Leslie lives in Crozet, Va., and likes to spend her weekends backpacking in Shenandoah National Park, hiking in George Washington National Forest or canoeing on Lake Moomaw.
