Nicole Leitch earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Nutritional Sciences at University of New Hampshire. While studying at UNH, she decided to take an EMT certification course which led her to working for Jackson Hole Fire/EMS for a period of time. It was then, that she met physician assistants in the medical community and realized that the PA role best matched her career aspirations. She attended University of Utah and received her Master of Physician Assistant Studies.
Prior to joining Hand Surgery Associates, she was working in urgent care and occupational medicine for the past seven years. What she loves most about working at Hand Surgery Associates is focusing on the common tools we all have: our hands, and helping people be able to use their “tools” with utmost function. Nicole’s principle in practice is to treat all her patients how she would like her family and friends to be treated.
When she’s not working, Nicole loves to be outside- chasing down fresh tracks on the ski slopes, biking, paddle boarding, and spending time with her family and friends.
