Leslie Zucker

I’m inspired by… movement – from physical to emotional. I believe that we sit too much and we harbor too much, and when we take better care of our physical and emotional self, we are clearer, wiser, nicer, more productive and overall better people.  

Things that make me smile include…movement (not surprised?!) I smile a whole lot while doing pretty much anything physically active with my close friends, boyfriend and our dog.  I’m a pretty smiley person in general.  Given a choice, I’ll go dancing – especially 5Rhythms. 

When I’m not working, I’m… stretching, dancing, hiking, camping, cooking, gardening or traveling. I have been known to be that person doing stretches in the airport or at a party. Sometimes I get strangers to join me! 

What matters to me… connecting with happy, loving, creative people who also want to help make the world a better place.
