Leah Barrett

Leah never stops giving back to our community.  As a nutritionist and MS LCSW, Leah has not only taught the value of healthy eating, psychotherapy, and personal training she has volunteered her knowledge to individuals and nonprofit organizations.  She has voluntarily supervised master’s level social work interns through CSU.

Years ago when Leah realized a whole-health fitness program did not exist in our community Leah establish BecomeFit.  Leah’s passion for mind and body wellness holds no barriers.  When health challenges arose and faced with chemotherapy, Leah released a You-tube video of her own personal experience to lessen the fear of cancer treatment.  Leah didn’t stop there, she discovered N.E.D. (no evidence of disease) a unique rock band of six gynecologic oncology surgeons from across the country, taking healing and the arts to a new level. Leah brought their documentary to the Lyric this past winter with the goal of reaching local women and the medical community in a powerful way – through music.  Leah has served on local Boards of nonprofits and continues to be involved with the CSU Department of Social Work.
