Leah

Years on team: 3

Spalon Montage Location and Stylist: Edina – Angie

Hometown: New Ulm, MN

Occupation: Accountant

First Job: I started my numbers career as a cashier at my hometown video store.

Favorite type of music: I'm a country girl!

Junk food weakness: I can't say no to a slice of cheesecake, especially from my mom's kitchen.

I spend my free time: I enjoy running with my dog, picnicking at the lake, grilling in my backyard and any other excuse to be outdoors.

I’ve always wanted to: I've always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon!

What would be one place you would love to travel? Someday I would like to experience the culture and cuisine of India.

What is your best beauty secret? Make sleep a priority! Even the best products and techniques have a hard time outdoing exhaustion.

What’s your favorite restaurant in Mpls? I can always find something perfect at the French Meadow Bakery. They have great seasonal specials on the light side to downright indulgent, and the quality is top-notch.

Celebrity crush: I will never get over Christian Bale circa Newsies.

My hidden talents are: I am a Scrabble expert.

One thing I wish I was great at: I wish I had a stronger creative side. My sister has an incredible knack for art and design, and I envy the way she can make beauty out of anything. 

Dream job: If I could land any job, it would be food critic. I just can't think of anything better than getting paid to eat and travel - my two most expensive hobbies.

Greatest achievement: I am proud of the hard work and grateful for the support of loved ones that have both contributed to my three seasons with the MVC!
