Leslie was involved in the start-up of Four Star Veterinary Service back in 2005-2007 and was excited to see the growth of the group into seven locations in five states.
Leslie re-joined Four Star Veterinary Service, LLC, in February 2019 as the chief operating officer after working as the administrator of a multi-location physical therapy practice for 12 years.
