Green Festival Speakers
Actress, Vegan Chef and Eco Lifestylist Leslie Durso shares her passion for vegan living daily on lesliedurso.com, on TV and throughout the web. Recently featured on Food Network, Discovery Channel, Hallmark Channel, and Mother Nature Network, Leslie fuses her sunshiny meat-free message with nutritional wellness to evangelize the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle to mainstream omnivores. Maxim Magazine wrote: "We want to hire Leslie as our own personal chef! We'll even eat vegetables for her." When she’s not firing up audiences online and on TV with veggie love, she appears at Food & Wine Festivals around the country. A devoted animal lover and mom to rescue-pup Pepé, Leslie gives her time and enthusiasm to a number of animal welfare organizations including The Humane Society, Best Friends, SquirrelWood Horse Rescue and Farm Sanctuary through promotional support and appearances.
