Lesha was born and raised in Salt Lake City and resides in the Millcreek Area. She attended the University of Utah for her undergraduate degree in Behavioral Science and Health and for her masters degree in Occupational Therapy. Just after graduate school, Lesha had an ankle injury that was not healing. When Western medicine was unable to help, she had a Craniosacral session. Not only did she get better but she knew Craniosacral Therapy was something she needed to learn to help others to heal as well. She enjoys spending her free time mountain biking, skiing, practicing yoga and Kalari, and hanging out with her husband and her dog.
