Before joining our team in April of 2022, Leslie worked as an occupational therapy assistant in school-based and outpatient settings. During this time, she cared for clients with a variety of needs ranging from behavioral health to developmental delays. Although she has gained experience in a home health setting as well, a majority of her time as a COTA has been in pediatrics.
Leslie joined our team with experience in a number of areas including aquatic therapy, electrical stimulation, and intensive therapy. Right from the start of her time at Dynamic Strides, she was making a huge difference in the lives of our clients by providing intensive occupational therapy. In a matter of weeks, these kids were making incredible progress and improving their functional hand skills in major ways. Leslie loves the fun and creativity of pediatrics as well as developing relationships with the kids in a clinic setting. She strives to meet them right where they are developmentally in order to help them achieve their own goals and aspirations in life. Her favorite part of Dynamic Strides is the ability to apply her knowledge of specialized therapy services, along with the fun and supportive atmosphere created by her coworkers.
In her free time, Leslie enjoys hiking and watching movies with her two boys and husband. Her mother is currently a volunteer here at DST as well. We are so fortunate to have them both be part of working towards our mission!
