Jessie Leslie of Summerville, SC is a hairstylist, a wife, and mother to twin boys. When she’s not in the salon, you can find her outdoors on adventures with her family, trying to keep her household running, serving the community with her church, or in a quiet place reading a book. Jessie loves to encourage families to spend time together. One of her family’s favorite ways to spend time together is outside. In fact, her family became Ultimate Outsiders in July of 2021. This means they visited all forty-seven SC State Parks! Jessie believes we can help each other by sharing our learned life experiences. Motherhood can be overwhelming and downright exhausting. She wants to help moms see the good and have fun! Connected, healthy families build better communities.
