Leslie graduated from Carrington College in Pleasant Hill in 2010, and obtained her Registered Veterinary Technician license in 2011.
She began her career while she was still in vet tech school, where she worked as an assistant in general practice. Once licensed, she was able to work her way up to Patient Care Coordinator, which entailed overseeing all aspects of patient care within the practice.
Looking for a change of pace and to challenge herself, she started working for a busy emergency hospital as Emergency Technician Supervisor. There, she quickly gained valuable experience in emergency and critical care, as well as caring for and treatment of a wide variety of avian and exotic animals.
However, she was soon drawn back to general practice by her desire to establish and maintain long-term relationships with the patients and their caregivers that she meets every day.
Leslie joined Four Corners Veterinary Hospital as Technician Supervisor in July of 2020. She has since become a valuable member of the team and can be found assisting doctors in exams, assuring the doctor’s orders are completed, obtaining samples, and performing various diagnostics, (i.e. in house lab work, submitting reference laboratory requests, taking radiographs, etc.), or as part of a procedure team, just to name a few. When she is not busy with patient care, she is working on staff training and development.
“I really feel blessed to be part of the team at Four Corners Veterinary Hospital! It’s been great to work with such a dedicated, caring group of people. Each and every one, from our awesome CSRs, wonderful technicians and support staff, to our amazing doctors— they all LOVE animals and their jobs, and it shows!”
Leslie and her husband, Robert have four dogs and three cats. All of which have come into their lives as rescues. Their dream is to one day start an animal rescue and sanctuary that is not only for dogs and cats, but also for any abandoned and/or unwanted horses, farm animals, and livestock. Their goal would be to give these animals a safe, loving, environment where they can live out the rest of their lives completely carefree.
