Leslie Newton, the founder of the well known diaper bag company, timi & leslie, is now the CEO and head designer of her new company Newlie. From crafts to comedy sketches, Leslie has been a creator since she was 7 years old. She began her career in the entertainment industry, performing with the Los Angeles Groundling’s Improv Theater and writing skits for programs such as Saturday Night Live (Schweddy Balls, anyone?). In 1999, she transitioned from working with comedians to working with moms (perhaps the only group more skilled at entertaining a rowdy crowd!) founding timi & leslie, the company that introduced the “stylish diaper bag for moms” to the masses. Today, Leslie is combining her unique talents and years of experience to create the company, Newlie. Newlie provides high quality, stylishly designed products at an affordable price for the modern mom.
