Leslie Wardman is one of the most experienced matchmakers in the industry with over fifteen years of professional experience. Following a twenty year career in ESPN production and advertising, Leslie decided to put her passion and natural talent for networking into what she calls the most important part of life – finding your significant other.

Shortly thereafter, she was hired to run an international matchmaking company for busy, single professionals. Yet, she envisioned a more personal, hands-on matchmaking experience. Thus, in 2002, Ambiance Matchmaking was founded.

Leslie relies on client referrals and word-of-mouth. She believes a job well done is better than any form of advertising. This adds an extra layer to the pre-screening process, as she already has a built-in reference. 

Over the past fifteen years, Leslie has worked with thousands of clients across the United States and Canada. She is proud to have worked with such amazing singles in accomplishing their dating, relationship and marriage goals.

Leslie has been a guest on several TV and radio shows, written columns on love and dating for major publications, and is the author of the book Love, Dating & the Beatles. She is currently writing a book on the phenomenon of divorce after seventeen years, titled The 17-Year Itch.
