Find out more about Leah

Leah has worked as an international student advisor for over eight years, and began working at Lawrence in Summer 2013. She holds a B.A. in Communication Studies and Spanish, an M.A. in International Education and Training and an Ed.D. in Higher Educational Leadership. While Leah was born in Wisconsin and raised in Appleton, she has lived and worked in cities throughout the United States!  She also studied abroad in the Dominican Republic during her college years.  She enjoys working at Lawrence because of the fantastic students. It is important to Leah to help students reach their personal and academic goals so she works with them in one on one and group settings to advise on personal, cultural, and immigration topics. In her free time, Leah enjoys gardening, reading, playing with her cat, Nikki, catching up on Hulu, and traveling as much as possible, often with her spouse Andrew, who works in the Mudd Library.
