As a Registered Nurse and Certified Yoga Instructor, Lesline has a decade of experience caring for patients with chronic conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes. Lesline understands that a commitment to self is integral to managing and ultimately healing these conditions.

Lesline’s motherhood journey led to a desire to not only care for her children but to also care for herself. This led to a separate adventure of transformation around finding herself, understanding her sacred femininity, and processing her internal questions of self, while wearing the mantles of mother of two and wife.

Nursing, yoga, and motherhood have aligned Lesline’s path to support stressed out moms who want to regain their time and energy.
