Leslie Pearce

Ecstatic to be writing for the Peninsula Chronicle sharing business news with the Hampton Roads region. I love connecting people and businesses! From West TN, lived in Nashville, Memphis TN where I was in real estate, then Charlotte, NC. We moved to Williamsburg, VA in 2014 and I was with Long & Foster Realtors for 4 years and left that career to pursue my dream of writing!
