Leah is a Pittsburgh native but has called Atlanta home since 2000. After moving to Smyrna in 2011 with her family, Leah plugged into the community and its diversity by volunteering on the City's Diversity Task Force and spearheading the 2020 initiative for Smyrna to be the first city in Cobb County to pass a Non-Discriminatory Ordinance. "We chose Smyrna as a safe place for our family to live where we saw families that looked like ours, a diverse and engaged community, and endless possibilities to celebrate our population." Outside of spending time with her wife, 2 teens, and 1 pup, Leah is a full time Orthopedic Physical Therapist specializing in total joint replacements and post operative rehabilitation. When time allows, Leah enjoys traveling, exercise, reading, and volunteering. Leah and her family are active members of St. Mark United Methodist Church in Midtown, an LGBTQ affirming church, where they assist with feeding the Atlanta homeless monthly. Leah has served on the Smyrna Is Fabulous board for 2 years, but this is her first year as the Executive Director . "I am honored to serve in this role in 2024. I am most excited about continuing to grow the Pride Festival, focusing on local vendors and showcasing the beauty of the LGBTQ community here in the Smyrna area. I am passionate about including our local middle and high school students in our festival and events as it is important to me that they are seen, respected, and welcomed to live out loud here in Smyrna and be accepted as they are." What's Leah's favorite part about living in Smyrna? "I can't choose just one.... I love the growing walkability of the City, Rev Coffee, and 1911 biscuit plus spending time in our awesome library."
