Leah grew up in a very small town outside of Worcester, Massachusetts. She began dancing at the age of three and never stopped! She was born with a passion for performing. Whether she was putting on fashion shows for her family, reenacting her favorite music videos, or performing in local musicals, she desired being in the spotlight.
After graduating high school, Leah went on to the University of Rhode Island and later transferred to the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth where she graduated with her Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing. While she knew it was important to get an education, she continued her love of performing with the New England Patriots Cheerleaders. Throughout her three-year term with the Patriots she traveled all over the world!
In 2008 Leah was one of eight girls who were invited by the Beijing Olympic Committee to travel to China and train Chinese cheerleaders and dancers to perform at the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games. She also traveled to Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Qatar, and Ecuador to visit and perform for our troops and thank them for their services. Throughout her time with the Patriots, Leah was featured in several world-renown publications to include a National Visa commercial, Muscle and Fitness, Esquire, Maxim and many more. Her charity work was something she always enjoyed. She was fortunate enough to work with so many different charitable organizations and loved giving back to the community.
Leah’s three-year term with the Patriots was up in early 2010. After graduating in May of the same year she knew she wanted to take her dancing career to another level. There’s no better place for an entertainer than Los Angeles! On a whim, she decided to fly out to LA the day before the Back-to-Back Champion Lakers were holding auditions for their dance team. With over 600 girls in attendance, Leah danced her way to the final round. After a few trips back and forth between the east and west coast, she earned a coveted spot as a 2010-2011 Los Angeles Laker Girl. As a rookie, she was the cover girl of the 2011 Laker Girl Calendar. She was featured in numerous commercials, magazines, and game shows throughout her Laker Girl Career. Much like her time with Patriots, she loved working with charities. Fit For Life grew to be her favorite organization to work with. Seeing kids without any sense of healthy living, inspired her to show teach them everything she knew about being healthy and fitt. Leah grew up around the fitness industry, as her father was a semi-professional boxer and WWF wrestler in the 1990′s.
While living in LA, Leah was fortunate enough to work with celebrity trainer from the Biggest Loser, Bob Harper. You can work out with Leah and Bob in his workout DVDs, “Ultimate Cardio Body” and “Totally Ripped Core”. This really sparked Leah’s interest within the fitness industry. After the 2010-2011 NBA season was over, Leah moved back to Massachusetts to pursue a career in fitness. Currently, she is a certified group fitness instructor and personal trainer.
Her message is loud and clear, work hard and never give up on your dreams. Leah believes there is ALWAYS room for improvement and is constantly working on being the best version of herself. She encourages those around her to live a healthy, fit, and passionate lifestyle and never ever give up on their dreams.
With having achieved all of these accomplishments at such a young age, the sky is truly the limit for Leah. Her passion, perseverance, dedication and hard work will continue to drive her towards success. Her career in entertainment has only just begun, and much of her story has yet to be written.
