Leslie tweets, pokes, posts, and DMs her way into the hearts of Plaid clients and readers with her 13 years of social media management and graphic design experience. She’s never met a stranger, never missed an opportunity to lend the shirt off her back (she has to replace a lot of shirts), and always searches for the silver lining.
