Hello there! I’m Leigh. I am a cookbook author, teacher, and writer/editor. My award-winning cookbook, called My Kitchen Chalkboard, about streamlining dinner for busy families without sacrificing interesting food and cooking, was released in May 2018. My food writing work has been featured in Edible Boston, the Boston Globe, Culture magazine, and other publications. I also recently co-founded The Fresh Collective, a network for women food entrepreneurs.

I’m a writer for hire on projects of any size and scope - from recipe development for food brands, to content marketing and other marketing communications.

I live in Boston with my family, and I’m a proud graduate of The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. I also attended the Gastronomy program at Boston University from 2002-2004.
