Leah’s PhD in Leadership and Change studies focused on ethics, gender and whistle-blowing. Hanes describes the MA in Organizational Management as the psychology of groups in the work place.
For six years Leah produced and hosted a television series in Canada profiling women in non-traditional roles. Her early life on a farm in Canada nurtured a strong sense of environmental stewardship and her first college experience was in Early Childhood Education.
For more than two decades Leah worked in the entertainment industry both as talent and as an agent. As talent Leah conducted interviews and hosted a variety of programs covering environmental issues, business and politics. As an agent Leah represented cinematographers, editors and production designers. For several years, in what Leah describes as her “empty nest” adjustment, she owned an acting school for children and teens.
As adjunct faculty Leah has an opportunity to marry her two passions, education and the environment in which we live and work.
