Leah paved the way for a deeper conversation about the stigma and impact of mental illness as one of the first bloggers to speak openly about her own mental health online. She was a consultant on the Showtime series, United States of Tara, where her life and experiences were used as a springboard for the main character played by Toni Collette. Leah speaks to groups about the Mind/Body Connection, recovering from chronic illness, and navigating life as a Highly Sensitive Person. Leah uses her voice to educate and encourage others to live a healthy life as well as sing badly in the car (with the windows rolled up).
Leah’s essays and interviews have been published in books, magazines, and online. Her blogger interview series (2004-2007) was one of the first of its kind, bringing to the forefront up-and-coming bloggers as well as highlighting celebrity and established bloggers and authors.
