When Leah was a teenager, she had the amazing opportunity to start to explore her own personal development, and since then has been driven to help others on the same journey. She is a registered social worker, who has been supporting people with their personal development for over 11 years. Her passion and expertise encompasses providing experiential activities that foster a better understanding of self.
Before founding All Thrive, she worked with youth who are engaging with their challenges around substance use and mental health at a wilderness treatment centre (Enviros Base Camp). There, she directly supported the clients through 1:1 counselling, facilitating experiential treatment groups, developing healthy community, and leading wilderness trips. In 2018 she took on the role of program supervisor, and focused on program development, staff training and leadership development. Seeing the challenges youth had to face before getting the support of the program only strengthened her belief that self discovery and mental wellness needed to be provided to everyone before it seemed like they may be struggling.
Her background also includes coaching freestyle skiing, as well as working with youth in wilderness leadership camp settings. Through this, she gained a greater depth of knowledge on how youth learn through what they experience, and how to create situations to cultivate that learning. In addition to her Social Work Diploma, she holds an applied degree in Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership.
