Leslie joined the Mayfair Animal Hospital team as the Practice Manager in June of 2017. Veterinary medicine is the career path that Leslie chose at a very young age. As a five-year-old child, she rescued baby rabbits from the family dog after it disrupted their nest. She cared for the survivors and sent them on their way when they became stronger. This was the point at which Leslie knew what she wanted to do in life. After almost 25 years of clinical experience in managing veterinary patient care as a Registered Veterinary Technician and Certified Veterinary Practice Manager, she feels honored to be able to give back to the profession and to contribute to the development of colleagues in this field.
Since 1993, Leslie has had the opportunity to experience all areas of veterinary practice. In 1995, upon passing the National Veterinary Technician Exam, Leslie became a Registered Veterinary Technician. After several years working in practice and a multitude of continuing education hours, hard work and training, she was given the designation as Practice Manager. In 2008, she earned the designation of Certified Veterinary Practice Manager. Leslie has a genuine passion for the advancement of training and education for managers, technicians, assistants and client support staff.
Leslie is married to her high school sweetheart and together they have one vivacious young daughter that keeps them on their toes. Leslie and her family share their home with a super-smart, adorable Rat Terrier named Percy T. Jones & an energetic kitty named, Dozer. In her spare time, Leslie enjoys spending time with family, watching her daughter play competitive travel softball, photography & monogramming everything!
