Dr. Leyva is from Houston, the eldest of five children. ?She attended Houston Baptist University, graduating magna cum laude with double majors in biology and biochemistry/molecular biology. She attended medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch, where she also completed her internal medicine residency and stayed on for another year as a chief resident and an assistant professor of medicine. After that, she completed her fellowship in rheumatology at UT Southwestern Medical Center.

Dr. Leyva was in practice as a rheumatologist and a clinical assistant professor of medicine in Temple, Texas prior to joining UVA Physicians Group in October 2016. She is interested in the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound in rheumatology and earned her RhMSUS certification from the American College of Rheumatology in January 2016.
