Hi! I’m Leslie! I live in Utah (USA) surrounded by the amazing Wasatch Mountains. After over a decade in Southern California, I never thought I’d leave the beach, but the mountains are my new beach. I am creating a community where I get to combine my natural gift of teaching with my love for all things health and wellness! When I’m not teaching, I’m learning more about natural alternatives, working out, DIYing, writing, watercoloring, or exploring the outdoors with my family! 

If you told me 5 years ago that I was not living my best physical life, I would not have believed you.

I was (and still am) a runner, hiker, martial artist, and one who thrives on all things organic.

And yet, I was “healing” my body with over-the-counter drugs, “soothing” it with chemical-laden creams, and “hydrating” it with artificial sugars.

To say that toxins overloaded my system is an understatement. 

It was not until my first daughter, at 18-months old, had a health concern that required a full-body chemical cream did I see how “normal” toxins were as a health treatment, and how I was permitting toxicity as a regular go-to for my growing family.

Frankly, I struggled as a new mom with the decision to lather my daughter in chemicals, but I didn’t see any other options.

I knew nothing about essential oils when I began using Young Living products.

When my best friend told me about Young Living I jumped at the chance, and this decision quickly moved me away from toxins and into an organic lifestyle. I knew nothing about essential oils when I began using Young Living products. But frankly, I saw that as a wife and mother, my family’s health truly depended on MY choices.

For me, I didn’t choose Young Living because it was a company with a better-scented lavender or lemon to diffuse (which it is).

I chose an industry-leader and community that was committed to the highest standards for bringing God’s life-giving purity into to every home. Into my home. Living in wellness was never about simply ‘buying oils’.

This lifestyle is an investment in my health and will create a lasting legacy of purity and wellness for my children and generations to come.

Let me ask you, “is somebody depending on you living well?”
