When she isn’t working, Leslie enjoys spending time with her husband Dave and sons Riley and Wyatt.
Lee was born and raised in Richmond, VA. After serving with the Army in Vietnam, he returned to the Richmond area. He has been at Woodside since 2003. Lee enjoys spending time with his wife, two sons and four grandchildren. He also enjoys riding horses and his Harley.
Terri grew up in the pet care industry, starting with a family-run boarding facility in Charlottesville in 1992 up until moving out of the area in 2004. She had been in small animal veterinary medicine for over 13 years prior to joining WEC in July 2018. Terri lives in Caroline with her husband, Stuart, and their Irish Wolfhound, Halo.
Jenna grew up in Short Pump, Virginia and relocated several years ago to Montpelier, Virginia. She has been riding horses since she was nine years old, competing in local barrel races around Virginia. Jenna received a degree in Phlebotomy from Allied Institute of Healthcare in 2020 and in her spare time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, as well as any outdoor activities with her horse, Peach, and her dog, Darby.
Angie is the one you’ll find out in the medicine barn at the end of her work day, passing out love and well wishes to the inpatients.
In her youth, she had that classic animal lover’s dream of being a veterinarian, but after working in a small animal practice, realized she was just too soft natured to be good at it. Instead, she got good at business accounting and after many years of working in CPA firms, has found her “happy place” at Woodside serving and supporting the amazing medical team that she calls her super heroes. Outside of Woodside, she’s a guitar playing music fanatic that loves spending time with her son and dog, camping, bike riding, kayaking, and doing crafts or reading.
Karen was born and raised in Palm Beach County, Florida and has been around horses (read: obsessed with) since she was seven. In 2019, she and her husband packed up the horse and cats and relocated to Virginia to be closer to family (and to get a break from the Florida heat!). When not in the office, Karen is either at the barn spending time with her horse, hiking our state parks with her husband, or at home with her cats, reading, sewing or painting.
