Her Most Interesting Job
Before working as a paralegal, her most interesting job was with the NC Medicaid department. “My job was to train doctor’s offices and hospital staff to use a web-based program,” she said. The program was designed to track claim information for Medicaid recipients. “The department used it to cut down on doctor shopping for people using the ER or a primary care provider,” she said.
Dedicated to Saving the Planet
While her time at work is spent helping families going through difficult times, her second passion is saving the environment. “I would be a lion tamer, “ she said when asked about her alternative career choice and then added, “Just kidding!” A lion tamer would definitely be interesting, but a dangerous profession choice!
Alternatively, she shared “I would have a career that help saves the planet or maybe an environmental engineer.” Her desire to protect the environment is actively practiced at home as well. “I recycle and use my own bays at the grocery store, “ she said, “I am trying to save the world one bag at a time!”
What Food Calls to Her?
Everyone has that one food item that tantalizes their taste buds and calls to them. For many, it is donuts, ice cream, or another sweet treat, but not for Leah “Pizza, there are so many different kinds!” she responded when asked about her favorite food to eat. A common favorite for many thanks to the extensive variety of choices and flavors!
Enjoying a Day Off from The Law
She enjoys getting out into the great outdoors and experiencing all the beauty this planet has to offer. “In the summer, I would head to the lake or river with a cooler and a raft,” she said. It is definitely the best way to spend time soaking in the sun and relaxing! “I love spending time outside,” she said, “Drifting along is extremely relaxing to me!” When she is not helping people or the planet, you might find her drifting along the river or eating a slice of her favorite pizza.
