This week we will hear from Leslie Clark.
Leslie is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She earned a Master of Social Work Degree at The University of Utah, and a Bachelor of Science Degree with a Social Work emphasis at Utah Valley University. Leslie currently works at The Younique Foundation, a nonprofit organization. She is privileged to work with powerful and inspiring women who have survived trauma. Prior to this, she worked with teenagers in the Juvenile Justice System, and at the University of Utah Hospital on the trauma unit. Through this work, she has had the opportunity to learn from those experiencing both acute and chronic distress.
Leslie has experience working with lesbian, gay, and transgender populations. She is also an advocate for human rights and overall equality. Being a calming presence to assist others in finding peace is something she takes pride in. Leslie is passionate about meditation and mindfulness. She believes in learning to be in control of one’s own emotional and physical health through awareness and self-compassion. The resilience and strength of human beings as they navigate their individual circumstances is a constant source of inspiration for her. In her free time, Leslie enjoys a good outdoor concert or symphony, hiking, muay thai, water sports, snowboarding, hot yoga, traveling, sunsets, and most of all, the ocean.
