Originally from Gladstone, NJ, Leah headed west to attend Colorado College, where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in economics. Leah’s passion for camp and adventure started as a child, where she attended summer camp and a Bold Earth trip to Costa Rica. She spent a semester abroad in Florence, Italy, where she was a teacher’s aid; she’s also worked as a camp counselor and led multi-day service trips for incoming college freshmen. Currently, she facilitates weekly outdoor education activities for middle schoolers. Leah is a wilderness first responder and is heading to Bold Earth for her third year as a trip leader.

  • What was the last big trip you took? This fall and winter, I spent three months working in Hong Kong, and then I traveled around southeast Asia for a few months.
  • What excites you most about returning to Bold Earth? I can’t wait to get back to endless laughs and desserts. I look forward to it all!
  • Favorite travel memory: Probably when I spent three weeks rock climbing in Laos!
