About Leigh, your MA16 GSLE Mentor!

Hello!  I'm Leigh, and I've been a Girl Scout troop leader for four years.  I have two daughters- Allison is in third grade and is getting ready to bridge to Juniors, and Lizzie is in Kindergarten, finishing up her first year as a Daisy.  I've been a leader with Allison's troop since they were Daisies, and I'm a leader with Lizzie's troop as well.

I work part time as a Community Engagement Manager on the UW Madison campus, and I am very involved at my girls' school, New Century School in Verona.  I also love to sew and I'm learning to knit.

I'm originally from New Jersey, went to college in Virginia, and moved to Fitchburg in 2004, just before Allison was born.  We love it here, although I don't think we'll ever adjust to the winter weather!  My husband Tim is an Editor at the American Red Cross.

I'm excited to take on this new role and learn more along with all of you about the Girl Scouts Leadership Experience!
