Leslie DeRemer is a retired elementary school principal who grew up in Ferndale/Hazel Park, Michigan. Education has been the focus of her life. She would like to use her skills as an educator to spread the good word about the benefits of a healthy plant based lifestyle. PBNSG is the perfect vehicle to deliver the message. Leslie became involved in PBNSG two years ago, attending classes, large presentations and small groups. She was very honored to be asked to serve as the Director of Volunteers and enjoys working with this amazing group of dedicated people. Leslie is also a small group host for the Almont/Lapeer/Imlay City/Romeo area. She is very passionate about sharing a whole food plant based lifestyle with others. Her ever growing knowledge on the subject came about after years of research and formal classes. She became a raw food nutritionist eight years ago and continues to attend food preparation classes, recently completing the Forks Over Knives culinary course.
Leslie also promotes exercise as a means to maintain a healthy body. She runs, lifts weights, hikes and enjoys yoga. She also rides her bicycle on a regular basis, completing the 52 mile Zoo-de-Mac and 42 mile Beaver Island bike events. Each year she and her plant based, bicycle riding husband would like to add to the list of cycling events.
In her spare time, Leslie enjoys riding her Harley with her husband David. She also belongs to a women’s motorcycle riding group called Stilettos on Steel. They ride for pleasure, as well as ride for important causes all across the state. Her spare time is also filled with family camping trips. She recently purchased a toy hauler and is looking forward to taking the Harleys on adventures across the United States.
