Leslie Grounds, NP

Leslie Grounds MSN, CRNP, is a family nurse practitioner who is board certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Board and is licensed to practice by the state of Alabama.

Leslie knew she wanted to become a nurse at a young age after she witnessed the significant impact nurses made on her mother while in the hospital. Leslie graduated with her Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Auburn University in 2012 and began her nursing career as a registered nurse in the Emergency Department in Montgomery. Leslie later expanded her nursing experience while working on the Progressive Care Unit at EAMC before transferring to the Endoscopy Department where she ultimately earned her position as patient care coordinator of the department. Leslie maintained this position until graduating with her Master of Science in Nursing from Auburn University with a specialty in family primary care in 2019. Upon graduation, Leslie began her nurse practitioner career in primary care in Opelika before obtaining her practitioner position at Nash Dermatology. Leslie truly loves building trusting relationships with her patients and strives to provide quality, compassionate, patient-centered care every day in practice.

Leslie and her husband Joseph live in Auburn with their son Casen, their daughter Emmalyn, and their three dogs Penny, Sadie, and Barkley (War Eagle!). They are members of Auburn Community Church and enjoy going for walks on campus, spending time at the lake, and playing golf with friends and family.
