Lezlie Brooks Johnson
Born and educated in California. Formerly an assistant director and producer of television commercials in the US and abroad. Mother of 2 adult children and one six-year-old boy. Founder of Allies for Every Child in 1987, a non-profit dedicated to ensuring childhoods for children mostly under five from underserved and impoverished areas. We bring together families and cultivate conditions for children to succeed in life. Foster care, adoption, early education, and mental health programs for children and adults are some of our primary programs. My activities include swimming, diving, hiking, reading, and keeping up with Holden. I am an avid traveler, lifetime learner, and lover of life and nature. My natural optimism is challenged by climate change and I have joined this expedition so that I can learn how to best become an ambassador for the preservation of this planet I love.
