Leigh began her musical training on the harp at the age of 8 and has enjoyed playing ever since. In 2001, she graduated from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University with a degree in harp performance and earned a performer's certificate. From there, she freelanced as a harpist in D.C. before deciding to move to Oregon. With her dad's help, she packed up her harp in her van, lovingly known as Betsy, and has been freelancing in the Pacific Northwest ever since.
She loves to play all types of music and learn songs to accompany the mood and style of any event. She has been lucky to play in some interesting places including on a cruise boat, at a zoo next to the aquarium and even in a rock quarry!
Currently, Leigh resides in Oregon wine country with her husband, chickens and 3 Border Collies.
