In addition to PCOM’s intensive didactic curriculum, Leslie participated as an Intern in PCOM’s Community Clinic and Outreach programs, located in and around New York
Prior to attending PCOM, Leslie earned a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, where she majored in Business. She spent many years immersed in Corporate life and is intimately familiar with the stress associated cubicle life, as well as the impacts on the body, mind and spirit. Consequently, the stress led her on a journey to seek alternative modalities to support her own health and well-being. She found the benefits of Chinese Medicine so profound and positive that she enrolled in Pacific College of Oriental Medicine to become a practitioner.
Continually adding to her tool-kit, Leslie has continued studies that include Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Five Element, Classical Pulse Diagnosis, Shen-Hammer, and Kiko Matsumoto, to name a few. These traditions and practices enhance her understanding of the mind-body connection and energetics that have become the basis of her practice. Leslie specializes in autoimmune, musculoskeletal conditions and psycho-emotional issues such as depression, stress and anxiety. Leslie’s goal is to provide patients with integrative options for optimal care by building a bridge between Eastern and Western philosophies of healing and health through Oriental Medicine
