Leslie has a zest for life and loves meeting new people. She believes that strangers are just friends that she hasn't met yet. She enjoys exercising, telling stories, traveling and planning the next adventure.
Leslie was born in Nebraska, grew up in Virginia and returned home to "The Good Life". This is where she met her husband R.J., at a Nebraska Football tailgate. Their first adventure together was to the British Virgin Islands where they fell in love with each other and the boating life.
Her real calling was to be a rockstar but instead she became a nurse :). Leslie worked in surgery, trauma and then as an Oncology nurse. More recently, she has joined R.J. in their business doing occupational nursing and safety training.
She is considered by many, as a rainmaker. She can take an idea and run with it.
She enjoys cooking for friends and family. She has taken the Rouxbe Culinary course, studied in Thailand and is attending Yacht Chef training in London.
Leslie has two children and one amazing grandchild.
R.J.'s purpose is to have fun and live a life of adventure with passion while inspiring others. He grew up in Lincoln, NE and obtained a BS degree from Oklahoma State University and now owns a business in his hometown.
He is often quoted as saying "we only live once, let's do it right". He loves a new adventure and really is a genuinely nice human. He is always smiling and willing to lend a helping hand, support, or a compliment. Leslie has often been asked if RJ really is as nice as he seems and the answer is undeniably, Yes! He really is.
R.J. enjoys outdoor activities, investing, real estate, golf and snow skiing and is also a pilot.
Sailing and boating have been a big part of R.J.'s life as he has lived on a lake for the last 22 years. With a motorboat and sailboat in the backyard, it has been a lifestyle rather than just a hobby.
RJ and Leslie have shared many adventures over the years including fun trips like the Oktoberfest in Munich, Songkran in Thailand and the Sturgis motorcycle rally in South Dakota. They too are very involved in multiple ongoing fundraisers and philanthropic activities.
Their boat BelieveN came from such travels. Her red “N” pays homage to their Nebraska roots. They named her BelieveN, as a reminder to Believe in yourself. Pursue your dreams. Know that you are worth it. Take the leap. Sing the song. Make friends. Live a life – don’t just live. And whatever else you put your mind to, just don’t stop BelieveN
