Animals have always had a special place in Leya’s heart. Growing up as a social recluse in the middle of nowhere, young Leya would often try to befriend any creature that walked, crawled, slithered, hopped, or trotted by her, much to the chagrin of her parents. Nowadays, Leya is working towards her goal of being a fulltime actor-also much to the chagrin of her parents-, having completed a BFA in Theatre at Concordia University. In the meantime she is proud to be a member of Team Liesse. In the small amount of downtime she has between caring for your animals at Liesse, rushing off to rehearsals, and performing onstage, you can catch her painting, making costumes, or hanging out with her rescue dog Bonejangles andher royal kitty cat Princess Hamlet.
