    Now as a mother of two children, and one with Down syndrome, Leslie aspires to give as much time and energy that she can in achieving a more inclusive community for our children and adults with special needs. Whether in education, employment, or general social programs and events, Leslie firmly believes that a country with so much to offer through its world-class tourism, financial services, and real estate sectors can surely provide a premier infrastructure for the most vulnerable members of our community.

Prior to making the move to real estate, Leslie brought her experience with managing classrooms to the construction site, assisting with the supervision of her family’s residential and commercial construction company. From overseeing project timelines, budgets, employees, client requests, and the constant need to go “above and beyond” Leslie appreciates what it takes behind the scenes to ensure the smooth and effective running of a highly technical and fast-paced organization.
