Meet MSHF Scholarship Recipient Leslie LaJeunesse

Leslie is studying to become a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner (PMH-NP) at the University of Alaska. She was drawn to the program because of her desire to further her education so she can better address the mental health needs of our area. After completing her program, Leslie plans to work in Alaska with a focus toward children and adolescents with behavioral and/or mental health disorders.

Of her best study tip, Leslie says, “Work ahead when you can! There will always be things that come up that throw off your schedule.” Outside of school, she enjoys spending time with her husband and son fishing, hiking and camping.

Leslie says of her MSHF scholarship, “The MSHF scholarship has helped fund my tuition lessening the financial burden that higher education so often produces.”
