Biographical Information

Trips to Honduras and Philippines after high school transformed Dr. Leyse’s life in ways she then couldn't envision.

“When I was young, I wanted to be a veterinarian,” she recalled. “But after those trips, I thought, ‘I can’t go abroad, help animals and not help people.’”

While completing an adult infectious disease residency at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, she was called to offer medical support during an ebola outbreak in Liberia. The trip, and loss of a colleague to the disease, influenced her deeply.

Two years later, “I took a leave of absence to help with the epidemic” in Sierra Leone. She returned to New Hampshire to support Dartmouth-Hitchcock’s travel clinic.

“I’m hopeful that this diverse background will help me better care for patients in the many seasons of their lives,” she said.

Philosophy of Care:

After many years in training for Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, Infectious Disease, and Preventive Medicine as well as population health and healthcare delivery, I am looking forward to developing life-long relationships with my patients in both the primary care and sub-specialty settings.
