Leah is ecstatic to be back in her home state of California with the 10News team as both a reporter and weekend meteorologist. Leah is a native to Sacramento and moved to the Central Coast to get a B.S. in Journalism from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. She then completed a Master's Degree in Meteorology from Mississippi State in December 2020.
She started her career as a reporter and weekend forecaster at KERO in Bakersfield, CA, where she won her first NATAS PSW Emmy award. She then moved to KTNV in Las Vegas, NV to fill the same position, earning three more Emmy nominations for her work at that station. Now, she's enjoying the same role in San Diego. She won another Emmy for 'Best Live Reporter' in her first year at ABC 10News after covering major breaking news events including George Floyd protests and the Valley Fire.
Leah has a passion for shooting, writing, and editing stories by herself, skills she learned thanks to the NPPA News Video Workshop, which she attended twice. She also placed in multiple NPPA quarterly clip contests.
She joined the ABC 10News team in May of 2020. She has a tuxedo cat named Secret Agent Mittens, or Sam for short.
