Hi, I'm Lesley.

Here's a little about me:

I'm a Los Angeles-based writer, editor, and entertainment media specialist.

In April 2013, I joined ABC News in New York City as the digital entertainment editor, overseeing the network's online pop culture and celebrity news coverage. In addition to writing and editing content, I've also appeared as an expert in videos for ABCNews.com and on "Good Morning America," and "World News Now" among other programs. I transferred to the Los Angeles bureau of ABC News in October 2015.

Previously, I was on staff at People magazine for seven years, covering breaking news, interviewing A-listers, and writing the occasional movie review. I also contributed written and video content to People.com.

I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, and earned a B.S. in journalism from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.  I also have an M.A. in journalism from NYU's Studio 20 multimedia program.
