Lesley Parkin

Lesley was raised in England, and graduated with a Bachelor of Education Honors degree from Cambridge University. She moved to the United States in 1978, and holds a Master of Education degree from South Dakota State University. She taught science and was a school principal in middle schools in Alaska for 27 years. After moving from Alaska, she set sail on a new challenge and became a licensed real estate appraiser in California, where she currently runs her own company appraising commercial real estate. Lesley has always been an avid reader, and has entertained the family with her command of numerous English dialect accents! She studied French for 5 years and also won a Fulbright Memorial Fund Scholarship to Japan in 2004. Raising seven children in a blended family has provided plenty of opportunities to read aloud! She now practices on the one human (doting husband) and four remaining canine family members, who all approve with smiles and wagging tails!
