Dr. Leslie Wilkof has been a practicing OB-GYN since 1986 and has worked at Kaiser Permanente's Hayward Medical Center since 2003. Dr. Wilkof was born in a suburb of New York City and lived for many years with her husband and 3 girls in Canton, Ohio. She is an accomplished chef who enjoys the design, preparation and presentation of creative dishes of all kinds, with a focus on healthy cuisine. Although the culinary arts are her main hobby, she also enjoys travel, skiing and pursuing many fields of learning. She is fluent in Spanish and is currently taking classes in Hebrew. Proving that it is never too late to start a serious exercise program, she is proud that she has successfully roused herself each morning for the past year at 5:30am, to attend an exercise class that focuses on core strengthening, stretching, pilates, and yoga stretches.
