She was raised in the Bountiful area and attended Viewmont High School where she enjoyed her time as a Student Body Secretary, graduating in 1969. After High School, Leslie attended Brigham Young University and worked at Jacob’s Lake in AZ and often spoke fondly of the adventures and friends she made during that time.
She then settled in Salt Lake City where she started her career in the District Attorney’s Office. It was during this time that she met the love of her life Ken Snow through mutual friends.
