Veterinary Assistant Lesly with DogLesly was born and raised in Fairfax, VA. She is currently in training to be a licensed veterinary technician (LVT) at Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC). Lesly first found her passion in practicing veterinary medicine when she was working with the veterinary staff at the National Zoo. Shortly after that internship, Lesly joined the staff at Springfield Animal Hospital in March 2014. She started her LVT courses in August 2015 and has continued working with and forming bonds with our four-legged patients and our wonderful clients in her time away from class.

Lesly is active in events sponsored by NVCC, such as the Annual Dog Wash, and the Vet Tech Club. She has a Yorkie-poo named Peanut, a blue-eyed and white-coated Pomsky name Ghost, and an Angora-Holland Lop mix bunny named Norman. Lesly's animals follow her around like a shadow and keep her company while she works hard in school. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, biking, cooking, baking, and running with her dogs.
