Leslie has three decades of experience providing hydrogeologic, hydrologic, environmental, and scientific consultation for water resources projects.

 What I like most about being an engineer is the ongoing challenges. With groundwater work especially, I love taking bites of data and interpreting these to form a bigger picture of what’s going on.  Water is so incredibly important here in the West, and being part of the industry developing creative solutions to managing this important resource is exciting, varying and important to ensuring the long-term success of the state.
