Leah Mesh-Ferguson

Leah is proud to be a 2014 Ecuador alum of Global Citizen Year. She comes to Global Citizen Year from the theater world, where she worked as a company manager. Over the past year, she has also been a people ops, strategy, and operations consultant for small arts organizations. She completed a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre & Drama Studies and Cultural Studies at McGill University in Montreal and now lives in Brooklyn, NY. She grew up in Arlington, MA. Outside of work, Leah is an avid crafter who knits and sews much of her wardrobe. When possible, she loves to escape the urban sprawl and hang out in the woods. As the People Operations Associate, Leah is thrilled to be part of developing this organization as a leader in human-centered employment practices and philosophies.
