About Me

Hi there! I'm Leslie, author here at With A Side of Chocolate. And this cutie is my husband, Christian! We've been married since October 19, 2014. 

I am originally from Athens, GA and in 2010, moved to Boone, NC to attend Appalachian State University. After graduation (with a Marketing degree I don't use), I moved to the Queen City (Charlotte, NC) and started a life with that man up there. Recently, in the Fall of 2018, we up and moved to Charlottesville, VA for a new adventure. 

For two years, I worked for a sales and marketing company but in 2015, I made a career change. You can read a little about that decision here. After a little over three years at what I thought was my dream job with Coca Cola Consolidated (don't worry, I'm still aggressively brand loyal #cokeforlyfe), I was graced with a new opportunity at UVA Health System that I couldn't pass up! 

We have two fur children. Zuko is a 5 year old rescue kitty and he is definitely the man of the house. He's also named after Danny Zuko. Yes, from Grease. Ellie is our newest addition. We adopted her in June 2015 and she's an Aussie/Lab mix and is definitely gave us a run for our money as a puppy. She's named for Ellie Goulding who sang our first dance song!

Your cat is named after Danny Zuko. That is just the best thing I have ever heard!
