Leigh began her physical therapy career after an injury to her knee while playing hockey back in high school. She enrolled in the Physical Therapist Assistant program at North Shore Community College and graduated in 2007. She has been practicing in outpatient orthopedic settings since then and also works per diem for a small inpatient nursing home.
Leigh enjoys spending time playing sports and being outdoors such as hockey, snowboarding and camping up in New Hampshire. She also spends a lot of time hiking in the woods with her boxer Zoe and cheering on the Bruins both at home and at away games.
