Leanne grew up in the suburbs of Toronto, Canada with a natural affinity for the outdoors. After studying and working as a registered medical laboratory technologist, she turned her attention to co-creating a successful wildlife education organization, where she rescued and worked with everything from cougars to cockatoos. It was only after the wildlife business had run its course that Leanne finally answered the call of the west and landed in the outdoor playground that is Vancouver, British Columbia.
In between camping and hiking the Rockies and beyond, and struggling to get her PADI scuba diving certification, Leanne built on her entrepreneurial background to further her work experience in the world of small business bookkeeping and to write for various business publications.
Twenty five years and two awesome children later, Leanne’s still loving the coastal mountain lifestyle that supports and inspires her writing career. When she’s not creating content for SLC Bookkeeping, she can usually be found roaming the local footpaths in an effort to ramp up her annual bird sightings, or making preparations for her next travel adventure.
