Our Team


Leslie Williamson
Director & Senior Lecturer

After 20 years of Lecturing for the NCTM, Leslie Williamson has made the move up to owner/director of the business she has been so passionate about for many years. Looking at the animal from the ‘whole’ perspective is still so important for them to live with optimum health, wellbeing and longevity. Leslie is still lecturing across all courses and is looking forward to further course developments and new guest speakers to ensure our students who graduate from the NCTM, are the standouts within the Equine and Companion Pets industry. Leslie is also a qualified saddle fitting specialist and brings sound and factual knowledge to the Equine courses to further the students knowledge on Equine muscular-skeletal and biomechanical dysfunction. Her passion is as strong now in helping humans, to help animals as it was in her humble beginnings. This is certainly exciting times ahead for the NCTM and the world of Equine and Companion Pets.

Ashlie Williamson
NCTM College Manager and Lecturer

Ashlie joined the NCTM Lecturering team and became College Manager of the NCTM in 2016.
Ashlie has a degree in Environmental Science and Biology, majoring in animal sciences bringing to the College the true knowledge of assessing each species as a whole, from a biological specific stand point. Understanding the Anatomy and Physiology of animals is of the utmost importance, when considering what the species needs to not just survive, but thrive. Her passion for the origins of plant life and the role they have played in the development of modern medicine as we know today, shines through in her work. Through further study and research of nutrition and herbal medicine, Ashlie is keen to see this pathway grow not just for equines and companion pets, but to include native flora and fauna.
