Veterinary Assistant Certificate 2010




From a background in the apparel industry she decided she needed a career change.  Her love for animals influenced her decision to go into the veterinary field.  With a strong history in customer service and and desire to meet new people becoming a receptionist at a veterinary hospital seemed like the perfect fit!  Leslie was born and raised in Lexington, NC and moved to the Greensboro area in 1977.  She went to college at UNCG where she obtained a Bachelors of Science degree.  She loved the area so much so decided to stay and make her home here.  Leslie has 2 children and a grandson that she loves spending time with.  In her free time (if she ever gets any!) she likes to do zumba and travel.  She is looking forward to meeting each of our clients and building relationships with them and their babies!
