Leah joined the College of Arts & Science as Director of Development in November 2018. In this role Leah leads a team of advancement professionals who work closely with alumni, donors, and friends of the college in support of the colleges strategic priorities and the university plan. This team also works in partnership with all 21 of the colleges departments to support their alumni engagement and fundraising objectives.
Leah’s career with the University of Saskatchewan began in August 2017 when she took on the role of Associate Director, Alumni Engagement with the central Alumni Relations team. During this time Leah played an integral role in the development of a refreshed alumni engagement strategy in support of the University Plan. Leading a team of Alumni Engagement Officers, Leah guided the development and implementation of new and enhanced alumni engagement initiatives with a focus on student and young alumni engagement, regional engagement, volunteer engagement, and alumni recognition.
Prior to joining the university, Leah was at the MacKenzie Art Gallery (Regina, SK) for eight years, where she was the Director of Development and Communications. As a proud University of Utah alumna, where she was a record-holder on the Women’s Swimming and Diving Team, Leah still bleeds red and white but you're sure to find her cheering for the University of Saskatchewan Huskies too! While Leah and her family enjoyed their time in Regina, she is happy to be back in Saskatoon (her hometown), and she looks forward to working closely with alumni and supporters of the College of Arts & Science.
