Leah was born and raised alongside the smell of processed sugar beets in Grand Forks, North Dakota. She attended the University of North Dakota where she graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration. After 21 years in the same place, Leah decided a change of scenery was needed. So, she moved far away. Like really far away, all the way to Stockholm, Sweden. While there, Leah got her master’s degree and started her 10-year career in digital marketing. She joined North Dakota United in the hopes that she can help improve working conditions for public employees and teachers across North Dakota. Outside of work, her guilty pleasures include Hall & Oates and RuPaul’s Drag Race. Leah’s not so guilty pleasures include traveling, playing Pinochle and (occasionally) beating her husband in racquetball. Random fun facts about Leah: She once went diving with Great White Sharks in South Africa, she’s a dual citizen, and genuinely enjoys assembling Ikea furniture. Leah resides in Moorhead with her husband and 2-year-old son.
