Early Life and EducationLeslie grew up in Chino Hills, which back then was one of the smaller towns in California. She attended Litel Elementary School, and after school was usually in sporting activities such as soccer or golf at the nearby Los Serrano Country Club. She wasn’t very good at sports but enjoyed them, which was also a means for her parents to keep her out of trouble. She then attended the McCoy Equestrian and Recreation Center, which has remained as one of the more popular high schools in the area. During the 1990s, she saw a sudden shift in the area, as growth was coming quickly. What was good about Chino Hills is that despite the development, the hills that the area was named after still remained untouched, becoming an in-demand area for people wanting homes with a good view. After matriculating from high school, she enrolled in the University of California in Riverside, completing her bachelor’s degree there.
After graduating, Lopez moved to San Diego and started working with KUSI News as a weather anchor, as well as a host.

She also worked for the NBC-affiliated KGET based in Los Angeles, serving as a weekend weather reporter and anchor, and as a news writer and producer for CBS2/KCAL 9. Eventually, she was offered a similar position at ABC7 in Los Angeles, which is known as the workplace of several high profile broadcasters. She now serves as the morning meteorologist for the show “Eyewitness News”, and has worked with the Weather Channel Founder John Coleman. She meantime pursued a degree in meteorology, enrolling at Mississippi State University and completing her degree in 2017, and with which she aims to make meteorology a long-term direction in her career.

She likes to keep that aspect of her life away from the spotlight, though many sources state that she is single.

During her free time, she enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, surfing and scuba diving, going to beaches as much as playing indoor soccer. She also reads a lot of books, writes, and loves to try out new dining places.
