I’m Leigha. I work in the knowledge and research space for a national nonprofit organization focused on global health and gender equality in development. I'm a trilingual bookworm and also a PhD candidate in the Public Policy program at Carleton University. I serve on the board of JustChange Ottawa, a local giving circle of young people focused on catalyzing neat ideas.

I'm highly interested in Knowledge Mobilization and Knowledge Management practices and innovative ways of fostering meaningful connections between sectors.

When I'm not studying or nonprofit-ing, you can find me reading novels (especially crime and mystery), cycling, or watching cooking shows. Also, I belong in Ravenclaw.
