Leah is deeply engaged in service and leadership to the Environmental Engineering Program, The BOLD Center, and college of engineering through her role as Co-President of the Society of Environmental Engineers (SEVEN), where she is dedicated to promoting inclusivity and helping build community. She also served in multiple peer mentoring roles in GoldShirt, EVEN, and ImagineCU. Leah's involvement in promoting inclusivity has also reached beyond the university, through her research promoting inclusivity and empowerment of people living in north Denver neighborhoods disproportionately impacted by the expansion of I-70 and her summer 2021 internship with the Environmental Protection Agency focusing on expanding engagement with rural community leaders in our region. After graduation, she plans to continue advocating for diversity and inclusion efforts while contributing to the field of environmental science and engineering.
