Born and raised in Danbury, Connecticut, Leah Dvorkin attended the University of Michigan, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training and worked on the sidelines for Michigan football. She then went on to complete an Athletic Training Fellowship at The Steadman Clinic in 2008. After working as a physician extender and orthopedic surgical technician, Leah attended Emory University and obtained her Master’s in physician assistant studies. While at Emory, she volunteered for the South Georgia Migrant Farm Worker Project and received the Heritage Award from the faculty. She enjoyed her time in the south but after graduation, the mountains were calling which lead Leah back to the Vail Valley.
Leah returned to the Steadman Clinic in 2015 as a physician assistant in orthopedic surgery. She and her husband reside in Edwards. Leah is an avid lover of all things “mountain”. In her spare time, you can find her skiing, hiking, mountain biking, floating down the river and camping.
