Pronouns: She/Her

Leah grew up in Minnesota and began her career in marketing when she moved to Los Angeles in 2007 to work for a startup tech company. Since then she has lived in Portland, Oregon, and Western Colorado where she has filled marketing roles in the construction industry, advertising world, and in various startups.

For the last eight years, Leah has practiced folk herbalism and wildcrafting around the Mountain West. She has a deep love for plant study, ethical foraging, and hand-crafted wild medicine.
