She is an award-winning entrepreneur, having founded Order Out of Chaos-an organization that was inspired by Leslie’s efforts to help her son after he was diagnosed with ADHD. She is also an author, creator of a planner to help students master time management skills, and an internationally acclaimed speaker on topics spanning from time management to addressing chronic disorganization and hoarding issues. Leslie has been named as one of the top ten time management experts in the world by Global Gurus, and speaks all over the country to help students of all ages and budding female entrepreneurs utilize their resources to best navigate the task-driven world in which they live.
