Leia grew up in a small town on Vancouver Island and obtained a Criminal Justice diploma from Camosun College in Victoria, BC. Having worked in a government office for the nine years following, Leia was ready for a change and moved to Calgary for a job working with horses. A year and a half of travelling with a show jumping stable, and a few trips to the chiropractors office later, she was ready for an office job again. Leia joined the reception team at Coach Hill in December 2015.
When she is not in the office, Leia spends her spare time riding horses, hiking, gardening, and playing ball hockey. As someone who enjoys helping people, she can also be found volunteering at music festivals and for the Will for Riding Foundation.
