In 1994, she received an Outstanding Achievement Award from the Television Academy of Arts and Sciences for her work on SNL.
Yoga. During her tenure at Dateline, she received her first certification in yoga and ultimately left NBC to travel to India and pursue her passion for teaching yoga. With seven yoga certifications under her belt, Leslie became Director of St. Luke–Roosevelt Hospital’s Parent-Family Yoga Programs in NYC while also teaching yoga and meditation retreats in India, Australia and Costa Rica. Her extensive private clientele included actress Sarah Jessica Parker, whom she worked with for many years.

Introspection. Leslie has always had an appetite for understanding the complexities of the mind and tapping into the human potential. Delving deeper into an awareness of her own emotional character and inner workings, she underwent five years of analysis with Dr. Rita Frankiel, former board member and speaker at the Freudian Society. During that time, Leslie also committed to a meditation practice under the tutelage of Swami Ramananda, current President of Integral Yoga – San Francisco.
