Project Description

Originally from Panama City Beach, Florida, Leah has been a part of the Moab Gear Trader community since March of 2019. Although she grew up near the beach, Leah fell in love with the magical desert out in Utah and spends as much time as she can thru-hiking around the Southwest. 

Her favorite outdoor activities are thru-hiking, running, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), and white water rafting. A perfect combination of outdoor activities for someone living in Moab! 

She likes thru-hiking the best since it allows her to see this beautiful country on foot, and reach desolate places that many people will never see in their lifetimes. 

Leah’s proudest accomplishment was her completion of the Appalachian Trail, a 2,000 long trail that runs the length of the Appalachian mountains on the east coast. She doesn’t go anywhere without her Marmot 15 degree helium sleeping bag! Even when it’s snowing and cold outside, this bag has kept Leah warm and cozy all night long. 

When she’s not at Moab Gear Trader helping fit you for your next trail runners, she works with Underdog in Moab helping to foster dogs from the four corners.
