Realizing that it was too soon for retirement, she began researching franchise opportunities that would involve helping people in her community. Narrowing her search to Project Walk, Leslie learned more about spinal cord injuries and was shocked at the lack of centers available for individuals to exercise, in order to stay healthy and work toward their recovery. To her this was a no brainer! Leslie has a handful of hobbies and interests including riding her Harley Davidson, traveling, and spending time with her beautiful family and friends.
