Creative, courageous leader empowering female skiers.
I first met Leah while shooting for Heliski Canada at RK Heli in Invermere. I was immediately drawn to her confidence and positive, can-do attitude. Of course Leah is super strong on her skis but beyond that she is a leader who contributes back to her sport by inspiring and empowering others. That includes me! When I met Leah back in 2012 I really wanted to pursue my career as a filmmaker, but I was not yet confident that I could make it work. She told me to "just go for it" and directed me to the work of other female filmmakers who were "killing it" at the time. She helped me to believe in myself, and gave me the push I needed to commit to going to film school. Since then we have done a number of video projects together for brands such as Gore-Tex, Patagonia and MSR.
