Leslie Byron

Leslie, her husband John and son Jake came to San Juan Island in 1997 after retiring from the family restaurant business in North Bend, WA.  She decided to do some volunteer work with local non-profits in her spare time and became good friends with long-time island resident Dodie Gann.

Dodie invited Leslie on to the Animal Protection Society board in 2003, and in 2004 she took over the position as Director and has held that position since.  With her business and fundraising background and her love for animals and concern for animal welfare, the position proved to be a perfect fit for her and the shelter.
