Burlington- Wards 1 & 2
Leah is a proud Burlingtonian, residing in Ward 2, for over 20 years.
With both a Bachelor’s degree from McMaster University and a graduate certificate from Humber College, Leah is a strong believer in life-long learning noting graduates from high school pursue many pathways including university, college, apprentice, work and community.
She is happily married to her husband Desmond for 24 years and they share two children, both of whom have successfully graduated from the Halton Public School system. Leah’s daughter is in her final years of university and Leah’s son is preparing to enter the realm of post-secondary learning.
Throughout her children’s journeys through elementary and high school, Leah was actively involved as a parent council member.
Leah’s passions for enhancing education and connecting with community members was evident in her long-haul volunteerism projects that included community playground refurbishment, championing capital school renewal projects and serving healthy breakfasts and snacks at school nutrition programs.
Leah wants to use her time as a HDSB trustee to improve student success and community awareness of school initiatives to increase parent involvement through transparent communications.
Separate from the board, she is an active member of the Partnering Aldershot Committee and the Partnering Youth Advisory Committee which aim to address community concerns and cultivate engaged youths in the Aldershot community respectively.
