As a Senior Associate on the Portfolio Performance and Support Team, Leah works on investment selection, overseeing the curation of New Profit's pipeline of strong social entrepreneur-led organizations and refining the investment strategy and due diligence process.
Leah’s initial drive to work in the social impact space stems from her mother’s passion for education and promotion of social equality. Growing up, she watched her mom constantly advocate for marginalized communities and since has felt strongly about working to create a more level playing field for all individuals.
Leah first joined New Profit as a Co-op on the Portfolio Performance and Support Team where she managed New Profit’s portfolio organization reporting and codified nonprofit best practices for the firm. She joined New Profit full-time in January 2017 where she spent a year working on the Development Team doing prospect research, pipeline management and organizing stewardship events and activities.
Leah has previously held positions with MFS Investment Management and Amazon Web Services.
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, practicing yoga and staying active outside.
