Leslie earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from San Diego State University, graduating Summa Cum Laude. Her passion for nursing was solidified early on as she experienced and supported a loved one’s battle with terminal cancer while in nursing school. Her early nursing career was spent gaining experience in the operating room, outpatient procedure centers and orthopedics. Leslie balanced mothering four children while starting and operating a medical transcription business but eventually felt the pull to return to nursing where she would have more exposure to patients and their families. She spent several years working as a case manager and clinical director with a national company serving Department of Energy workers. Leslie quickly fell in love with the senior population she served and found the true ability to connect with people struggling with chronic illness. She currently sits on the St. Mary’s Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees. Today, Leslie serves as an Executive Director for Nuclear Care Partners and is inspired daily to be sharing a mutual passion for helping former Department of Energy workers.
