Leah works on a wide range of projects at Education Northwest, providing research, administrative and editing support throughout the organization. She is especially interested in special education and creating diverse curricula for nontraditional students and learners. Before joining Education Northwest, she earned her master of social work degree in health, mental health and disability policy from Columbia University School of Social Work and bachelor of arts degrees in psychology and environmental studies from Lewis and Clark College.
When she’s not working, Leah spends an unreasonable amount of time playing competitive Ultimate frisbee. On the occasional sunny day, you might find her on top of a mountain.
“I believe that every student deserves an education specific to their learning needs. Creating equitable curricula needs to be a priority for educators, and I think Education Northwest opens doors for all students to reach their potential.”
