Call me Leslie. I am a certified physician assistant or PA-C often called a “PA.” PAs are licensed medical professionals who conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, counsel on preventive health care, assist in surgery, and write prescriptions.
I grew up in Boise, ID. I moved from Boise to Arizona for PA school in the late 1990s and stayed there for 20 years, but my family and I missed the mountains, so we chose Utah for the amazing outdoor lifestyle.
I love to partner with patients to help improve their overall health. I enjoy working in diabetes management because the patient-provider partnership and relationship are so important.
My favorite Color is Coral. I love eating meat and vegetables, Stir Fry, and ice cream. Skiing in Utah used to be our favorite vacation spot–now I get to live here! My son is a Sophomore at the University of Utah, so I bleed red now. Go Utes!
I am an avid cyclist and skier. I love hitting the road, mountain, gravel path while biking, and a nice resort like Snowbird or backcountry skiing.
As a provider here at DETS, I will listen to you and help you work toward YOUR goals while providing information on how we can best work together to improve your overall health and quality of life.
