Leah began her career teaching overseas and played an instrumental role in negotiating and developing the first native-speaker English program within the public school system in South Korea. Since back in Canada, she has co-owned numerous successful businesses in consulting, events and e-commerce.
A proud member of the autistic community, Leah is passionate about the value that neurodivergent people bring to our world and advocates for the recognition and celebration of autism as a neurotype, identity and culture.
Leah is obtaining her national designations in mediation and arbitration. She is excited to volunteer as co-chair of the engagement committee for NSRJS and looks forward to learning more about the healing and connection that restorative justice offers our community.
With her family, Leah is honoured to enjoy the natural beauty of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh nation’s unceded territory and acknowledges the lasting harmful impact of colonization. She is committed to learning how to uplift and support Indigenous youth and their families in the spirit of reconciliation.
