Les was born in Japan where he grew up with missionary parents.  He came to the U.S. to do his medical school at Northwestern University in Chicago and then completed a Family Practice Residency in Peoria, Illinois.  In 1990, Les and his family came to Nepal and after 5 months of language study in Kathmandu, moved to Tansen to work at the United Mission Hospital.  He worked for 12 years there - serving for many of those years as the Medical Superintendent.  From 2002 to 2012, Les and his family were back in the U.S. and Les worked for 5 years in a rural general practice, and for 5 years in an Urgent Care Facility.  During those years, he also took time to see patients at the homeless shelter about once a week.

In 2012, Les returned to Tansen with his wife where he has continued to work as a senior physician, and is also now the head of the Training program here.
