Community Engagement Coordinator
Leah oversees our Volunteer and Humane Education programs as well as assists with planning League events. You can see her at community events or sometimes visiting a school with her senior Dachshund, Khloe!
Leah began at ARLNH as a volunteer in high school, cleaning cat cages with her mom on the weekends and fostering kittens. She especially enjoyed working with the sick cats with URI (upper respiratory infections) and seeing them grow stronger and healthier each week.
After graduating high school, Leah jumped at the opportunity to join the ARL staff as a member of the Animal Care team. After a hiatus to travel and start a pet sitting business, she returned to the League in 2019 to work in the Animal Intake department. In 2021, Leah took on the role of Community Engagement, enthusiastic about the opportunity to interact with the community, informing on animal welfare and our organization’s mission.
In her spare time, Leah enjoys cooking, hiking, and rock climbing. She lives with her partner and two senior cats, V. and Tabitha, and senior dachshund, Khloe--all of whom are ARL alumnae!
