A Canadian Israeli, Leah began her professional career in law. She worked as a foreign clerk at Israel’s Supreme Court and briefly practiced law with one of Israel’s leading firms. Leah’s passion for social change inspired her to pivot to the non-profit sector nearly 20 years ago. For the past 18 years, she has worked in resource development at a number of organizations, collaborating closely with management, philanthropic partners, and other stakeholders to nurture each organization’s sustainability and social impact.
Leah completed her LLB at the University of British Columbia at the top of her class, and holds a BA with honors from McGill University. Leah lives with her three teenage children in Har Adar.
