Leslie comes to Alliance from Justice from private and government practice.

Having worked as Co-General Counsel for the Indiana Election Division, she has helped guide candidates, nonprofits, and local election officials through more than 30 election cycles.  She has served as a resource for judges and lawmakers, often testifying as a subject matter expert on election law and policy.

Most recently she worked as a civil rights attorney. As part of her work with the Indiana State Bar Association, she worked with a group of attorneys and clients to develop a process to protect the safety of transgender clients, by sealing their name and gender confirmation records from public access.

Leslie is excited to join her colleagues in helping nonprofits shape policy, engage voters, and improve the lives of the communities they serve.

A graduate of Purdue and Indiana Universities, she is new to the D.C. area and welcomes recommendations for restaurants, theaters, or inside tips for the museums.
