Director of Children’s Ministry
Leah was born in Houston but spent her formative years living in Saudi Arabia and Canada. After returning to the states, she attended Baylor University where she received a Bachelor of Science in Education and also played on the school’s Inaugural Big 12 soccer team. Leah has had a successful 14-year teaching/coaching career with many peer accolades, one being Teacher of the Year. She has taught all levels of Physical Education, History, and most recently, Art. In 2011, she returned to school and received her Masters in Educational Technology Leadership from Lamar University. Leah has a passion for working with children and thrives on those “aha” moments they experience while learning.
Not only does Leah bring her spunk, passion and high energy to FUMCMC, she also brings her family. She is married to her best friend of 14 years, Andrew and they have two sweet girls, Lauren and Emily. In her free time, she enjoys coaching soccer, running, and doing anything outside. She also loves “creating” art pieces and is known for making a mess doing so. To relax, a day at the beach with family and friends is her perfect therapy.
