Before joining the Lisa Schmitz team, Leslie worked in a commercial architecture firm, where she learned to execute design and documentation on a large scale. She loves both the ideation process and the challenge of making ideas become reality. While in retail, Leslie honed her ability to decipher her clients’ tastes, and then style looks that made them feel happy and beautiful. As an interior designer, she seeks to do just the same. She believes people’s environments should reflect their style and evoke joy.
Though she is originally from South Florida, Leslie has lived in Kansas City since 2001. She lives in Fairway with her husband Darren and their cat Bunny. In her free time, Leslie enjoys traveling, gardening, painting, cooking, and working on design plans for her own mid-century modern home.
