While in law school, Leah served as a teaching assistant, and as law clerk for the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office and for the Los Angeles City Attorney, Animal Protection Division. Post-law school, Leah worked as a research investigator for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Office of Law Enforcement and was the Journal Clerk for the Nevada State Senate during the 77th regular and 27th special sessions.
