About Leah

Leah SingerMy name is Leah Singer and I live in San Diego, California. I am a freelance writer, and helps businesses and entrepreneurs tell their story and connect with their ideal audience and clients. If you want to really know me, read this post. If you want to know why I write, this post explains it best.

I’m known for helping people uncover their unique angles and hidden gems, and then creating clear and compelling communication that connects with impact. In addition to writing and working with clients on a regular basis, I’m a marketing instructor at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising where I teach college students real-world applications of marketing communications and brand management.

My writing has appeared on websites such as Huffington Post, Babble, Scary Mommy, Red Tricycle (where I’m the San Diego/SoCal editor), Edible San Diego, Millionaire Girl’s Movement,, BlogHer, and many other national publications. You can find all my published work here.

Before becoming a full-time entrepreneur, I was a speechwriter and communications manager for two college presidents at San Diego’s largest public university. I also served as Director of Communications for the San Diego State University (SDSU) Enrollment Services Department, and managed high-profile special events for the SDSU Office of the President. Before my years at SDSU, I worked in marketing and public relations at KPBS public broadcasting station. I also served as a senior writer for UC San Diego Annual Giving.

My immediate family consists of Bryan, my husband of 14 years; my 8-year-old daughter, Sophie; our dogs, Casey and Cody; and Tess the cat.

I enjoy spending quality time with my family and myself (“me time”); reading books and blogs; writing (including drafting my novel); cooking; eating good food; photography; drinking coffee; browsing bookstores; walking my dogs; binge-watching television shows (Homeland, The Killing and Law and Order: SVU are particular favorites); finding new and innovative ways to decorate my house; and celebrating holidays in fun and creative ways.

Leah’s Thoughts is a way for me to journal, share ideas, essays, musings, frustrations, recipes, funny stories, and – most importantly – exercise my lifelong passion of writing.

    Leah, I adore the way you write. So free flowing and easy. You create word pictures that trigger memories of my own. I especially like your stories about the earliest memory of the quilt and your interfaith wedding. I would love to stay in touch with you. I am writing my first non-fiction book, although I have published book reviews before. I am also a member of SheWrites.
