Hi, I’m Leah, and I’m a:
writer and editor, visual artist, and communications strategist
with a knack for heartfelt storytelling. I’m particularly passionate about
food and agriculture, sustainability, holistic wellness, psychology,
and the root causes of cultural trends.
I work with brands, entrepreneurs, and organizations to craft verbal and visual strategy that’s equally smart and sincere. I regularly edit articles and newsletters for Clementine Daily and write for a range of online outlets like mindbodygreen, My Modern Met, Design*Sponge, Heart Magazine, and Elephant Journal. I do custom commissioned illustrations, and my recent photography clients range from sweetgreen to Bitten to Girls Write Now. I’ve also styled photo shoots and events with Zio & Sons.
I tell my own stories, too, on the Core Stories blog and on Instagram. I design and sell greeting cards and prints based on my Core Stories posts. In each case, my aim is to expose the timelessness in timely trends, the soft solace in the hustle, and the magnificence in the mess of human life.
My prior background is in public relations, marketing, and corporate communications. I launched the viral #dailydoseofwhimsy Instagram campaign at Pink Olive and wrote the monthly “love letters” (like this one) for the store’s sister company called OliveBox, in addition to spearheading blogging, public relations, social media strategy, graphic design, and events. I created The Bromley Group’s TBG Tidbits blog and accompanying newsletter.
The Tasting Table says I’m “cheeky.” The Caption Project says I “unite keen observations with great affection for the world.” I say humor and heart are equally important to the human experience.
I’ve been traveling all around the U.S. since September 2016 to volunteer as a farm apprentice, and I adore few things more than fresh veggies. I’m an avid doodler and a devoted journal-keeper. I make a mean plant-based and gluten-free feast. (Ask me for my grainless granola recipe.) I run on an almost daily basis. I have a soft spot for silly puns, subtle metaphors, and alliteration, always. I believe in small beauties, the significance of serendipity, and the healing powers of a sunset and a mug of hot tea.
