A wellness expert, stage four cancer survivor, speaker, and Nourishing Resilience author. I help people and companies harness their resilience and optimize their wellbeing.
In 2017, Leah was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer and told she was going to die within the next two years.

Nearly four years later and instead, she’s thriving. Using her experience as a dietitian, exercise physiologist, and wellbeing expert, Leah crafted a strategy of resilience to help her reach total remission. Her formula for success using nutrition, exercise, mindset, kindness, authenticity, and love has helped her to beat the odds despite initially being given a one to four percent chance of survival.

Leah has been working with companies and individuals on nutrition and wellness for over fifteen years. She’s worked with multiple global organizations on their employee health and wellness strategy including Marriott International, McCormick & Co., Hilton Worldwide, Johns Hopkins, and ExxonMobil.

She’s also the co-founder of The Willow Foundation, which provides funding to researchers that strive to find a connection between diet, exercise, and mindset and improved outcomes for late-stage cancer patients.

Leah holds an MBA from the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University, a Master’s Degree in Sports Nutrition and Exercise Science, and a Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science.
