Leah made the transition to hands-on patient care following time spent
in medical research and teaching, as well as serving as a CNA and phlebotomist.
Unlike research, she is happy to directly affect her patients lives, and
more importantly, increase their quality of care. Leah is happiest in
hands-on care, and reaching vulnerable patient populations. She knows
she can can be the difference in someone’s life.
When working with patients, Leah sees her job as not only providing the
medical care, but also as being an advocate. Her approach as a provider
is not from an ‘us versus them’ mind-set. She advocates for
the patient being part of the healthcare team and being involved in their own care.
Outside of work, Leah spends much of her downtime on puppy play-dates,
and with her family and friends. She also enjoys spending time outdoors
fishing, biking, or jogging on nature trails year-round with her lovable
little fur baby.
