Lesley is the pseudonym chosen by a British nurse who trained in the early 1980s. Following her early career in the NHS, she worked for VSO in Tanzania and then trained as a midwife before joining MSF. Starting with Cambodia in 1998 and finishing with Haiti in 2011, Lesley undertook around 17 missions in all, some for a year or more but many that where shorter emergency interventions or research projects. She also completed a Masters in International Health. Having returned to live in the UK and met her husband, Lesley continues to support MSF and works for Marie Stopes and as a community nurse for the NHS.
