Leigha has 19 years experience in the museum field developing and delivering programming about science, history, and the arts to thousands of visitors at the Walker Art Center, The Science Museum of Minnesota, and the Minnesota History Center. Additionally, Leigha has spent the majority of the past 13 years in the recording booth, voice-acting for national television and radio commercials, film trailers, museum exhibits, documentaries, training films, educational games, and audio books.
Leigha’s love of communication and performance art is second only to her love affair with Nature; planted in her youth, tenderly nurtured, and flourishing in the decades since via connections with our sacred wild places. Leigha now happily weaves these paths by introducing, inspiring, and encouraging others to discover and honor their own connection with Nature. She resides in Saint Paul, Minnesota, with her beloved fiancé, the best pup in the entire world, and three very surprising cats.
