Leslie Guillory is a Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner specializing in medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD), substance use disorder (SUD), and primary care across the lifespan. She has worked as a registered nurse in adolescent and adult mental health and SUD. She also has over a decade’s worth of nursing experience in the emergency department.
At the height of the pandemic, working in the emergency department, Leslie witnessed an additional epidemic surrounding substance use; the stigma it presented, and the need for more providers to treat SUD while continually assessing physical health. While advancing her education achieving a Master’s in Nursing at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, Leslie felt her passion grow for the needs of this community.
Leslie is a native Austinite and has seen her city grow exponentially. She is thankful for the opportunity to be working with CARMAhealth.
