As a graphic artist, Leah creates cohesive, curated, modern, and engaging graphic designs and digital illustrations for the NDSU Foundation.

Leah, who is originally from the Twin Cities, earned her bachelor’s degree in graphic design from Minnesota State University in Moorhead, Minnesota.

"As a first-generation college graduate, my personal experience with higher education helped form and shape my future and who I am today. At the NDSU Foundation, I am encouraged and inspired to put my work and talent toward something life changing. I have seen firsthand how philanthropy impacts students' futures, and I am excited to help amplify inspiring stories about the NDSU community through engaging visuals and content."
