Leah grew up in Wisconsin & has the roots of a Midwestern girl. In 2007, Leah graduated cum laude from the University of Wisconsin with a Bachelors of Science in Conservation & Environmental Sciences; including a Minor in Biology, a Minor in Business & a Certification in Entrepreneurship. In 2009, Leah followed her heart to California, where she discovered Ayurveda. She was immediately drawn to this system due to her interest in the natural world & the symbiotic interconnectedness that exists between nature, mind, body & soul. In 2013, Leah completed her course of study at the California College of Ayurveda, in which she became certified as an Ayurvedic Health Practitioner, Ayurvedic Massage & Body Therapist, Ayurvedic Facials Specialist & Ayurvedic Herbalist. Once graduated, Leah joined the Blue Sage Ayurveda team in which she gained direct experience offering Pancha Karma therapies administered under the tutelage of Ragaia Belovarac.
Today, Leah is co-founder & lead therapist of PAAVANI Ayurveda.
She thoroughly enjoys connecting with clients & plant spirits through her product offerings, the art of healing touch & the teachings of Ayurveda. Leah is a firm proponent of the notion that everyone who applies Ayurvedic principles to their lives empowers themselves to be their own healer. Leah feels honored to be a channel for sharing this wisdom with the modern world. She dreams that one day all families will raise their children with the principles of Ayurveda & that the world will find healing solace through each individual’s cultivation of personal balance.
