Lesley has lived and worked in Paris and the South of France for over twenty years. Working initially for the UIA or the Union International des Avocats, a lawyers association based in Paris, before moving back to the UK where she worked as an Operations Manager in the luxury travel industry for Abercrombie & Kent Europe.

More recently she has worked with her husband's Paris based company, a licensee of adidas International. A stint in Hong Kong saw her own children attending the French International School which was quite an education!

She has been a Licensee with La Jolie Ronde nearly 10 years. She loves teaching the children and getting them to make silly faces to get them to work on their pronunciation!
