Leslie grew up as an only child, and her family pets were her constant companions. She cannot remember a time when she didn’t adore the company of animals! For her, working in the world of veterinary medicine simply makes good sense.
Leslie attended Texas A&M University-Kingsville to study animal science. When she learned about a new program in Veterinary Technology that was being offered, she jumped at her chance—Leslie was one of the first five people to graduate from the program, and she’s been a Veterinary Technician ever since!
Leslie interned right here at Mission Veterinary Hospital during her stint in Technician school, and accepted a full-time position with the clinic after graduation. In addition to her passion for educating clients on proper pet care, she’s particularly fond of dental work and loves to polish and scale pets’ teeth. She even plans on heading back to school soon to start work on her specialty in veterinary dentistry!
Away from the office, Leslie enjoys spending time with family, going to the gym, reading great books, traveling, and hiking with her two dogs, Gigi and Rooster.
