Meet Leah

Hello! I’m Leah and one of the Field Directors for Marsy’s Law for Iowa. I am excited for this opportunity to work toward equal rights for crime victims in Iowa.

I am a graduate from the University of Northern Iowa, with a degree in Interactive Digital Studies with an emphasis in Digital Imaging and Digital Visualization, and with a minor in Graphic Technologies. My past work experience includes graphic design work at a digital marketing company, and at a Fortune 500 company.  In addition, I was an event designer at Conference Event Management for marketing and client’s event communications, which also included responsibilities in planning events, being an on-site trip director, building client website, attendee management and other event needs. I’ve also supported other small businesses and non-profits as a Freelance Graphic Designer.

My desire to make a difference brought me to Marsy’s Law for Iowa. Since 2012, I have been very heavily involved with my family through a non-profit founded by my brother, Opportunity on Deck.  This organization serves Central Iowa communities by providing free-of-charge meals and athletic opportunities for children in nine different sports, summer camps, and through college visits and scholarships – all at no cost to the participants. Through Opportunity on Deck, I gained experience in marketing, graphic design, website building, organizational development, leaderships, coaching and mentoring.

I am eager to use my desire to make a difference, to use my skills, and grow as a result of working for Marsy’s Law for Iowa.
