ABOUT LEAH

My name is Leah Singer and I’m a freelance writer and editor. I’m known for uncovering unique angles and hidden gems, and then creating clear and compelling communication that creates impact.

I’m a Terre Haute, Indiana transplant from San Diego, California. How did I go from the Pacific Ocean to the Midwest? Read all about that here. And this is the editorial I wrote about how moving from a blue state to a red state changed my life for the better. That piece went viral on USA Today.

My published writing has appeared in USA Today; Indianapolis Star; The Huffington Post; The Good Men Project; Edible Indy and Edible San Diego magazines; Terre Haute Living and Tribune Star; Thought Catalog; Medium; and numerous other national publications. I am also the former managing editor of the Red Tricycle Spoke Contributor Network and San Diego city editor.

I have developed a niche within higher education, healthcare and non-profit organizations, writing content designed to engage donors, prospective students, alumni, and friends of universities and organizations. I also teach college writing at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College and serve as assistant coach for the college’s cross country and track teams.

My higher education portfolio includes University of California San Diego, San Diego State University, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, DePauw University, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Indiana State University, and California Institute for Human Science.

Included in my healthcare and non-profit portfolio are Sharp Healthcare, City of Hope, YMCA of the Wabash Valley, Wabash Valley Community Foundation, Maple Center for Integrated Health, Wabash Valley Road Runners, and California Charter Schools Association.

I worked more than 13 years in-house for both San Diego State University and UC San Diego. I was a speechwriter and communications manager for two college presidents at San Diego State, a writer in SDSU’s University Relations and Development Division, and Director of Communications for the Enrollment Services Department. I worked as a senior writer for UC San Diego Annual Giving, and in marketing and fundraising at KPBS public broadcasting station.

When I’m not working, I enjoy running, yoga, spending time in nature, reading, writing, binge-watching television shows and photography. I’m also a mom to a teenage daughter. 

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.
