When not working, Dr. Leasure can be found relaxing with her babies: Frankie, a hound-mix, Yzma and Kuzco, her kitties, and Flo the box turtle. She is also often found working hard planning her wedding for May of 2017. Her fiance, Nathan, is currently deployed, so she is active in military support groups.
