Dr. Leslie Ann Jones, DVM/MVB/CVA is originally from Water Mill, New York and she found her way to Richmond via a rather circuitous route. She did her undergraduate work at Randolph-Macon Woman’s College in Lynchburg, VA, and then she pursued a marine biology degree at Long-Island University, Southampton College. Dr. Jones was subsequently invited to attend University College-Dublin Faculty of Veterinary Medicine in Dublin, Ireland. After five years on the Emerald Isle, and two years in upstate New York, she has found her way back ‘home’, to Virginia! Woodlake has been her home for over 10 years now, and she is thrilled to be part of such a wonderful, generous and animal-loving community.
Her interests include alternative medicine, dermatology, behavioral medicine and nutrition. In her free time, Dr. Jones can be found in the barn (riding her horses Sugar Smax and Blue Tunes), at the beach (swimming, fishing and kayaking), gardening at her home or traveling. Her adventures are often shared by Godiva and Apple, her Australian Shepards and Border Collie, Dugan. She also has two cats, Aurora, and Athena, two twin lilac-point Siamese that were orphaned at Woodlake Animal Hospital the summer of 2017.
