From an early age, she got motivation and support from her mother, Gail Foster-Dorsey, who worked as a teacher for many years.

As for Lesli, Gail was an inspirational idol since her mother’s stories of racial discrimination sufferings and struggles back in 1963 when she was in high school always motivated Lesli to be an aware and educated woman. 

For her education, Lesli graduated from Howard University and soon started her professional career as a journalist.

As her first job, Lesli served the NBC affiliate WBAL in Baltimore as a reporter. 

After reporting on crimes for WBAL for eight months, she joined WUSA9 in 2001, where she is currently working.
