Leslie Stott, Parish Office Administrator

Leslie joined St. John in the Wilderness in 2014 and quickly grew to love the warm and welcoming congregation here. She was born and raised in Florida, where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Education at the University of Florida. In 1985 she realized a lifelong dream and moved to the North Carolina mountains, where she revels in the waterfalls, wildflowers, and glorious mountain scenery.


Leslie is married to Mike Stott, and they have three children, Geoffrey, Bryan, and Sarah. She loves flowers of all sorts (especially orchids, which she is learning how NOT to murder), music, and people. She is an Episcopalian and attends Church of the Holy Family in Mills River.
