Leslie began her career in dentistry in 1972 working as a dental assistant for her father who was a general dentist. Leslie's experience gives her first hand knowledge of dental office operations from both the employee and employer perspective. Learning all aspects of running a dental office, Leslie gained an "in the trenches" understanding what it takes to work in both the administrative and clinical areas of a successful dental practice. When Leslie's father sold his dental practice in 1982, she worked as a temporary receptionist and assistant for several dentists. Soon the demand for her temporary services gave Leslie the idea to open a dental employment agency. Leslie recruited, interviewed and placed dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, and front office personnel in temporary and permanent jobs. Leslie was able to match the employee to the employer by her unique perspective of what employers and employees want from working together. Within six years Leslie sold her business and moved to northern California where she worked for a local dentist. When Leslie was assigned the task of "OSHA Coordinator", she immediately saw a need to simplify the complex regulations. One of her responsibilities was to set up and present the OSHA safety program. This presentation was the beginning of Leslie's speaking career.
Leslie has a reputation for taking dry subject matter and presenting it in a fast-paced and entertaining manner. Her humorous and engaging personality have audiences begging for more. In 2003, Leslie expanded her seminar business by holding her own day-long public dental seminars.
