Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Family Foundation
Leslie is a trustee on the Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Family Foundation Board. Established by Fred and Barbara Erb in 2007, the foundation’s mission is to nurture environmentally healthy and culturally vibrant communities in metro Detroit, and support initiatives to restore the Great Lakes basin. The foundation is focused on improving water quality, especially in the watersheds affecting metro Detroit and Bayfield, Ontario; promoting environmental health and justice; supporting the arts as a means to strengthen the metropolitan Detroit region; and funding leading Alzheimer’s research worldwide. Leslie leads the Alzheimer’s Research area of the foundation, has sat on the finance committee and is part of the Strategic Planning Team. With a lifelong interest in the environment, she looks forward to advancing her parents’ vision of making the world a better place for future generations. Leslie has also been an accountant for a manufacturers rep, later becoming a rep covering five western states, but is most proud of her job as a mother raising three wonderful children. Leslie holds a BA in Psychology from the University of Denver and currently resides in Denver.
