Leslie graduated from Sutherland-Chan Teaching School and Clinic in 2001. She spent the first six years of practice in Toronto working with a wide range of patients before moving to the Collingwood area in 2007 and treating people in a variety of settings. In the course of her 2200 hour diploma program, and the duration of her career, she has treated individuals with neurological conditions, sports injuries, pregnancy related musculoskeletal discomforts and repetitive or stress related concerns. Her approach is clinical but in a relaxing environment, with some emphasis on self-care, exercises and informative feedback. Leslie enjoys many physical activities, such as hiking, running, cycling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and CrossFit, and is inspired by living in this beautiful area of Ontario. She is also the mother of a busy toddler who helps keep her happy and healthy.
