Leslie D.


Physical Therapist, Clinic Director

Leslie’s passion for Physical Therapy began with the realization that she wanted to be able to work one-on-one with individuals and to make a positive difference in their lives. Along the way, she has had several patients make an impact on hers as well. Leslie enjoys the rural setting of the West Point location and the “family atmosphere” that it brings. She has a special interest in pediatrics and vestibular rehabilitation. Regardless of the diagnosis, she believes in getting to know the patient and finding out their individual goals in order to provide them with the best chance of success with therapy.

Leslie is a graduate of Peninsula Catholic High School in Newport News, VA and earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from the Medical College of Virginia in 2006. She joined Tidewater Physical Therapy in 2006 and is currently the Clinical Director of Pivot’s West Point, VA location.

Outside of work, Leslie enjoys spending time with her friends, family, and dog, Gatsby, playing softball, anything related to the holidays, and, most importantly, being a mom to her favorite little boy.
