Leah was raised in Windsor, ON, completed an Engineering degree at Waterloo, then made her way west to Calgary for a Master’s degree. She completed her undergraduate medicine degree at Queen’s, then fell in love with EM and the Queen’s EM community. Outside of trying to be a good FRCPC EM resident, she is interested in low-resource emergency medicine, simulation, medical education and trauma.
When not in the hospital you can find Leah frequenting the local CrossFit gym (along with other Queen’s residents), taking her husky (Nimbus) for hikes, or paddleboarding Lake Ontario. Vacation time usually involves trips to the West Coast for snowboarding, or hiking various regions in the world.
