After moving down the 401 from Georgetown to Waterloo in 2011, Leah's post-secondary education started at Wilfrid Laurier University studying Film and English. Her love of researching and interviewing took her to Conestoga College to study Broadcast Journalism where she fell in love with radio.

She picked up awards for Best Radio Documentary, Best Newscast (radio), Best On-Camera Performance, as well as a Rogers Scholarship Award.
