Leslie has lived in Newport Beach for the past 25 years with her husband Dino. Together they have three sons and nine grandchildren.

Leslie is a graduate of Chapman University where she has been actively involved for the past 25 years in Women of Chapman and their annual fundraiser “Christmas at the Ritz”. She has chaired and preformed in Children’s Hospitals “CHOC Follies” for 17 years and is currently on the Executive Committee for Oceana’s SeaChange Summer Party.

Some of her favorite things in life are big Italian family dinners at their beach house on Sunday afternoons, ski trips with her kids and grandkids and travel with their dear friends.

Oceana has a very special place in her heart because the ocean is her backyard, and she sees first-hand the great need for this organization.
