About Leah: Having worked professionally with new college students for more than a decade, and stewarding thousands through this major life transition, I can’t imagine a more exciting, challenging, and yet rewarding time in a student’s life. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Biology and Secondary Education from St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York, and a Master’s degree in Higher Education Student Affairs from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. I’m a new mom with a toddler, so my free time is pretty limited, but we do enjoy getting outdoors, playing with our dogs, reading, and spending time with family and friends.
