As a Development Research Associate, Leah works closely with New Profit’s Development Team to support prospect research activity across the organization, enabling the team to leverage opportunities and cultivate relationships.
Leah was inspired to work in the social impact space due to her mom’s passion for education and promotion of social equality. Growing up, she watched her mom constantly advocate for marginalized communities and was taught to appreciate every person’s individuality.
Despite this, Leah spent time testing various potential career paths. Prior to joining New Profit, Leah worked in communications at MFS Investment Management and with entrepreneurs at Amazon Web Services. Through these experiences, Leah realized she wanted to pursue mission-driven work, where she knew she belonged all along. Leah began working at New Profit as a Co-op on the Portfolio Performance and Support Team managing portfolio organization reporting efforts and supporting different areas of deal support.
Leah graduated Summa Cum Laude from Northeastern University with a degree in International Affairs and Economics.
When she is not working, Leah enjoys eating her way through Boston, crafting, and doing outdoor activities.
