Profile Information


Want to be Buddies?

Hello, I'm Leslie, a communications designer turned librarian. I immigrated to Berlin 12 years ago from the US, where I've lived in California, Hawaii and Connecticut. I am the manager of intercultural opening at the Stadtbibliothek Pankow von Berlin (District Public Library System of Pankow, Berlin). This is my first Next Library!

I'm interested in international and intercultural library work, as well as inclusion and anti-discrimination work through librarianship, and am active in the IFLA Section for Library Services to Multicultural Populations.

Besides libraries, I'm also into cooking, foraging, dogs, art, languages, and learning about local cultures.


Unfortunately I am no longer able to participate in the Buddy evening. I can recommend my colleagues Karla Rost, Danilo Vetter, Corinna Haas, and Tim Schumann as great buddies!


I speak English and German. I can understand a little bit of Mandarin and Spanish.

Leslie is a really outgoing and super friendly person, who knows her way around the city. Choose her as your buddy, especially if you're interested in Berlins vibrating cultural scene! =)
