Leah is a born and raised Montrealer who found her passion in the field of lifelong learning. Leah would identify herself first as an educator working in the area of facilitating adult learning. She is also a researcher in the area of prior learning assessment and recognition which is inspired by her sense of social justice that credit should be awarded for knowledge and competencies no matter how or where it was attained. Professionally, Leah has worked as Director, Faculty Partnerships and Summer Studies at McGill University and as the Provincial Coordinator for the Recognition of Acquired Competencies (RAC) program for the English school boards in Québec. Leah greatly enjoys entertaining and has finally found a taste for good red wines. Leah and her husband enjoy traveling to new places, different cultures and exploring the local cuisine. Leah can then be found running with friends (to work off the new baked treats found on her travels). Leah is mom to two kids who love to act as taste testers to her cooking and baking. She is an organized hoarder of clipped recipes from many years of multiple subscriptions to different cooking and baking publications. Leah subscribes to one cooking magazine at a time. She is currently obsessed with the Liquor Commission Board of Ontario’s Food and Drink Magazine – a source of much inspiration.
