Leslie Green Guilbault Leslie Green Guilbault is a potter and bone carver from Hamilton, NY who learned the basics of wheel thrown pottery by taking elective courses as an undergraduate at the University of Notre Dame. After earning her master’s degree in English Literature, she worked as a senior administrator at Colgate University as the Bookstore Director and Director of Operations. She left Colgate in 2008 to explore the fast-paced world of contract pharmaceutical manufacturing at Norwich Pharmaceuticals, where she worked as a project manager and liaison to U.S. and international “big pharma” customers.
