Leah received a B.S. from Cornell University in Human Development with minors in English and Inequality Studies. While attending Cornell, Leah was a Cornell Tradition Fellow, a student employee of the Cornell Commitment Office, and was very active in community engagement work. Leah served as Co-President of the Community Partnership Funding Board, a grant funding board that supports the development of community action projects all over the country. Leah was also the Vice-President of Compass: The Cornell & George Junior Republic Partnership, an organization that works to develop and manage after-school programming at a local school. Through this partnership, Leah principally led “Poetic Justice,” a club dedicated toward exploring poetry and other forms of creative expression. In addition to this community work, Leah served as a teaching assistant for various classes in Cornell’s Human Development department, and conducted research on moral-decision making in a lab studying the intersection of psychology and the law. Leah loves listening to music, watching movies, riding bikes, reading, writing, and exploring mountains. She is very excited to join the Deerfield community as a Penn Fellow in the English Department!
