Noel and her twin brother Chris were born in Warrenton, OR to Shawn and Katherine Leyden on Dec. 23, 1993. Five years is all she would have with her mother and brother before a late night visit to the ER for Chris led to a drunk driver hitting the mother and son head on, killing them. After the lose of his wife and son, Shawn not knowing what to do with Noel signed her up for ballet classes and that became her passion until a ACL tear when she was 23 took that dream away. Noel came to LS like many others to escape something and to start over. Her first 2-3 weeks in LS was a roller coaster but she has picked herself up and is heading down the path she wants.
