Lesley is a freelance sustainability consultant and writer, covering environmental trends for Triple Pundit, Sustainable Brands and Earth911, while helping organizations and businesses develop compelling sustainability communications strategies and content.

Lesley first became hooked on finding solutions to environmental and social issues while working at the Environmental Defense Fund, where she helped advance environmental policy and strategic partnerships to address climate change, overfishing and other pressing issues.

Since then, she has worked with well-respected non-profit and business clients during her time on the Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy and Sustainable Business Practices team at Cone Communications and as a consultant, helping them to advance their sustainability communications programs. Her work with local sustainability consulting group, Gowdy Consulting, led her to the Urban Green Lab. 

Lesley moved to Nashville in 2014, where she seeks to contribute to building a more sustainable Nashville.
