Leslie Gervase has been practicing as a Registered Nurse for 32 years and currently works at Morton Plant North Bay Hospital in Florida as an Advanced Patient Care Leader, overseeing a group of patients from admission to discharge on a 39-bed cardiovascular telemetry unit.

She was then appointed by the Surgeon General of the State of Florida to serve on the Florida Palliative Care Ad Hoc Committee in 2015-2016.
