Leah grew up in a small coastal town in the Pacific Northwest with Olympic National Park in her backyard, and it was here where her love of all things wild began. Ever since she ran around shipyards at an early age and watched her dad work in the marine trade, she has loved being near water.
After years of traveling, living, and working in towns and cities across United States, she jumped at the opportunity to work with Lindblad Expeditions. Spending the past decade aboard Lindblad-National Geographic ships has given her the opportunity to use her love for nature and seafaring to spark that passion in others. She finds her peace aboard a vessel in strange new places with the wind in her hair and nature all around.
