Leigh is a medical student who spends time between her hospital shifts doing freelance writing in the health tech space. She is passionate about democratizing healthcare – about arming patients with the knowledge and understanding they need to feel agency over their healthcare experience. Since earning her BA in Design for Health from Stanford University, Leigh has worked for multiple health tech startups focusing on virtual healthcare, women’s diagnostics, medical device design, and COVID-19. She has been involved in oncology research from molecular biology in stem cells to clinical outcomes after cancer surgeries.
Outside of medicine, Leigh loves making ceramics in her studio in Providence, RI and learning new hobbies – most recently, capoeira and kite boarding (not at the same time).
