She’s Got Game!!

In the best of times, you may find Dr. Lesley travelling where she loves rafting down crazy jungle rivers or trekking over mountains, but her absolute favourite place to be is not far from here – fishing for striped bass! Dr. Lesley makes all her own gear and she can also throw together an amazing fish fry and also makes award-worthy fish tacos! She loves nights in with her two sons and husband but is always up for an adventure if FUN is in the offering! Not a big fan of the cold, she would literally choose to hibernate (as would her two cats Too and Sammy) were it not for her Labradoodle, Rose, and her Frenchie, Arnold Snortzeneger -demanding long walks in the winter.

Dr. Lesley’s passion for helping shelters and animals in need is seen in the many hours spent volunteering across the country and around the world. She is not known for being short-winded so pull up a chair and bring your coffee if you want to have a chat! Dr. Lesley graduated from Veterinary School 24 years ago and owned her first Veterinary Hospital in 1999. She is as passionate about taking care of her patients, clients, and staff as she is about relentlessly looking for ways to up-the-game at Cumberland County Animal Hospital with constant improvement and innovation. She is proud to finally open CCAH in a community she has been part of and has loved for so long!
