Leslie is one of the friendly voices you may hear when you call our office. Leslie graduated from St. Olaf College with a BA in English. She worked in collections, customer service and direct mail marketing before deciding to stay home full-time with her family. She has volunteered for many organizations including Independent School District 197, Pregnancy and Infant Loss Center, and Sidelines-Moms on Bedrest. Leslie joined Mendakota Pediatrics in 2006. She has always enjoyed talking with children and what better place to do that than at a pediatric clinic. Kids say the greatest things! Leslie is a native of Moline, Illinois, and she enjoys reading, sewing, visiting museums, meeting new people, and exploring new places near and far.
