When not at the office, Dr. Leone can be found chaufferuing her two school aged kids to their various lessons and sporting events. Being a competitive athlete most of her life, Dr. Leone now enjoys recreational mountain biking and snowboarding with her kids and husband in her free time. Also, the family recently welcomed a new dog who joins their 17 year old cat and dwarf hamster. Never a dull moment!
