About

New Project

Welcome!

I’m Leah, a communications professional and sustainability social media influencer.

I live with my husband and toddler son in a small home, just outside of Vancouver, Canada. We do our best to live an eco-friendly life, and I write all about it on my Instagram page and blog.

Sustainability is a huge topic, and can sometimes be overwhelming, but I believe that environmentalism is for everyone! That’s why I aim to create accessible, actionable, and empowering sustainability content that educates and inspires.

Education & Experience

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication from Simon Fraser University and a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Studies from the University of British Columbia. That means that I have more than 6 years of training in how to research, write, and share information with the public–something that I find both exciting and fulfilling.

After working for several years as an in-house magazine editor and writer, I officially launched my own freelance writing and editing business in 2016.

Why I do what I do

I’ve always been interested in environmental topics, but I didn’t fully dive into the issues until 2019, when I made a New Year’s resolution to go “Zero Waste.” That led me down the rabbit hole of environmentalism and its related issues. I’m still learning all the time, and I’m definitely not perfect! I love hearing your thoughts, so feel free to leave a comment.
