Q&A with Leslie:
What is your favorite thing about healthcare?
“I enjoy working with anything that has to do with health care. The best thing about working at PV is getting the hands on experience with the patients and learning how to use all the instruments."

"Something I would like to cross off my bucket list is to go sky diving and travel to Santorini Greece and Thailand."
What is something funny about your pet?
