Dr. Leslie Serrano is originally from Middleburg, Florida. Her compassion and love for animals started as a young child riding horses with her Aunt Jacquie and growing up on a small hobby farm. After moving to West Tennessee and deciding the veterinary life was the only life for her she started the lifelong pursuit of "I want to be a veterinarian when I grow up." With a love for agriculture, Leslie was an active member of the FFA organization at her high school and educated young children about farm animals every summer. After graduation earned her Bachelor's degree at the University of Tennessee at Martin in Agriculture Animal Sciences.
Dr. Serrano went to the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine for her veterinary training. She was an active member of SAVMA, SVECCS, Pathology, and VBMA clubs. She enjoys enhancing the human animal bond through communication and fear free handling techniques, and strives to promote client education and preventative medicine. Her interests include small animal emergency and critical care, ultrasound, and surgery.
In Dr. Serrano's spare time she enjoys hiking unrealistic distances, biking on an intermittent basis, and kayaking in the great outdoors. She spends as much time as she can spoiling her Chocolate Laborador, Brook and cuddling her kitty, Oakley. She is a plant enthusiast and an amateur long distance runner.
