Leigh loves running, reading and hiking with her dad. She became involved in rowing through friends in middle school and switched to coxing after a year on the team. Leigh’s dad is her hero because he has taught her about resilience and self confidence. Leigh was the 2018 MVP and Oarswoman of the Year for Stanford, a CRCA scholar athlete, and part of the Pac-12 first team and All-American second team.
