Today, her freelance work covers a broad spectrum, but her primary focus is providing clients with quality content related to careers, business, technology, personal finance, legal, education and U.S.-based travel. She has authored thousands of articles and blog posts geared towards both B2C and B2B audiences. Leigh pays careful attention to detail and prides herself on her research skills.

In an earlier life, Leigh worked in a variety of administrative support roles in a community college. She has a strong interest in higher education and absolutely loved working with students. As an adult, Leigh returned to school herself to pursue the Associate's Degree she had not previously finished. After a terrific academic journey, Leigh earned her MBA in 2010.
