Leslie Leventhal is pleased to have called Pepper Pike her home since 2004. She supports community involvement in local government, feeling that the more people become invested in their own neighborhood the more they will feel themselves as stakeholders. In this way Pepper Pike can become an even better place to live. Leslie’s professional career has included working as a hospital administrator at the Veterans Administration Medical Center and Mt. Sinai Medical Center and as an occupational therapist for the Euclid City Schools. She now operates a private practice in school-based occupational therapy, which leaves her more time for art work, hiking, swimming and volunteering. She has two grown children who live out of town.
