JoAnn Schwartz

Northern Kentucky Representative

Originally from Boone County but now living in Campbell, Leslie's family settled in KY over 200 years ago. She retired in March 2015 due to some health issues after a career of nursing in the fields of oncology and hospice. Just to keep life interesting, she also has an MA in Theology with an interest in world religions. Leslie has been very active in social justice most of her life, particularly in areas of housing and homelessness. She currently serves on the Economic Justice Committee.

She has been married for almost 40 years to her loving husband Paul. They have two children and three grandchildren. Reading and gardening have always been her passions. Ask her how her straw bale planting experiment is going.
