She facilitates enterprise and business-level risk assessments, evaluates fraud prevention and detection programs and controls, and has extensive experience in conducting risk, control, and IT advisory services for a wide variety of organizations in both the private and public sectors.
A frequent presenter on risk-related topics, Leah helps organizations identify “what keeps them up at night”…and one of those topics that affects the sleep patterns of board members and executives is reputation. A good corporate reputation is like money in the bank – a valuable asset, but hard to earn and far easier to spend. All it takes is one poorly handled misstep to lose it completely.

Leah also served as the President of the Maritime Chapter of the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) for five consecutive years, and is currently the District Representative for Eastern Canada.
