Personal HistoryLeila grew up on a cattle farm on the outskirts of Arlington, TX with her two older brothers. When they weren’t attending public school, they were helping out on the farm. Leila is an accomplished horseback rider and cattler wrangler, and she loves animals of all kinds, but she feels most relaxed when she’s covered in grease while rebuilding an internal combustion engine.
Though Leila enjoys working around the farm, there wasn’t really a place for her once she got out of high school. Her brothers had already taken over running things, and Leila was far too independent and bossy to take orders from them. She decided that she could find more adventure and excitement in Star Fleet. After speaking to several guidance counselors, she decided to pursue a career in the Medical field. She took to it surprisingly fast and quickly decided to join medical school, where she prospered. Leila’s natural compassion for animals translated to human patients very well, and also inspired her to major in Xenobiology. It was also a good choice for her future career in Star Fleet.
After finishing medical school, she took a residency position in General Medicine on a small starship that frequently travelled between Vulcan and Denobula. She received significant experience treating both species as well as humans. After her residency, she replaced the Chief Medical Officer and learned how to run a department, though she only had a couple of crew members under her.
Throughout her career, Leila applied to be on larger ships, and she finally received the offer of Assistant Chief Medical Officer on the USS Enterprise, CV-07. Though it meant a demotion in position, it was the chance she was looking for to stand out in the crowd by serving on a prestigious ship that had a lot more going on than the scouting route between Vulcan and Denobula.
The sheer size of the Enterprise and her crew was a culture-shock to Leila at first, but she soon found her footing and began to set herself apart from the other Medical Officers both with her patients and administratively. It was the latter along with her natural leadership abilities that finally allowed her to be promoted to Chief Medical Officer of the Enterprise.
Leila served in this position for a couple of years before she believed she had gained the experience to become a First Officer. She waited several months before receiving an interview with Captain Torgh of the USS Dauntless, CA-1553.

Personal Paradigm ShiftsMost Painful Experience: When Leila was 13-years-old, she broke-in a young horse under the direction of her father. The horse was like a family member to her after she was able to tame him. When she was 22-years-old, the horse developed a disease that made it necessary for her family to put him down. Since Leila was in the midst of stressful medical school at the time, it affected her deeply.
Best Time: Every summer she had growing up. Leila would spend days on end out in the sun, burning until her skin learned to tan and working around the farm. The days were so carefree and peaceful, and she doesn’t anticipate that she could return to that kind of lifestyle as an adult.
Most Crucial Experience: When she made the decision to leave the farm and join Star Fleet. It changed the path of her life forever.
Role Model: Leila hasn’t really found a defined role model. There isn’t anyone she has looked up to that both inspires her and doesn’t disappoint her.
