Leah has been a business owner since she was 18. At 20, she became a licensed midwife and has since delivered over 1,000 babies.

With a love for exercising, she has competed in the NPC (National Physique Committee) since November of 2018. To give back to the community, Leah and John work anonymously with families that need their help the most. This is done through the church, local schools, but mostly through God, going wherever He leads them.
