LEAH WHITE, Geek Staff Writer
BS, Business and Organizational Communication, Emerson College
ALM, Psychology, Harvard University

Leah became a theatre connoisseur at the tender age of three.  Her stage career followed shortly, with supporting roles in Hans Christian Anderson (3rd grade), Macbeth (4th grade), and Hamlet (5th grade).  Realizing that the front of the stage was better saved for the truly gregarious, Leah continued to pursue her love of the arts with piano, French horn, and classical voice.

After a 10-year detour into healthcare administration, finally Leah realized her theatrical dream as Executive Director of a theatre group.  She has continued to support the arts by asking others for their support in several Development roles throughout Boston.

He hails from Cape Cod and can often be found obsessing over English songstress Jessie J, watching clips of Wicked on YouTube, eating pizza, or silently sitting in a corner judging you.
