Manager of Grants and Institutional Engagement
Leah (she/her) grew up in the Detroit, Michigan area before embarking on a decade of world exploration and learning. During this time, she was able to diversify her non-profit experience, ranging from program and partnership development to grant procurement and management, in local to international organizations. She has spent her career using the power of words to drive impact in each of the agencies she has worked with and strongly values being part of a creative, mission-driven team. Leah holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Sociology from Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts as well as a Master of Science in International Humanitarian Intervention from the University of East London in London, United Kingdom. In her free time, you can find her practicing yoga, running, cycling, and chasing her toddler around a park. Leah will be new to the Seattle area this summer, and she is very much looking forward to enjoying all of the beautiful nature, camping, and hiking that Washington has to offer with her partner, Jorge, and son, Cruz.
