Working with digital content and analytics, Leigh is enmeshed in the production of news and information for faculty and staff at IU and IUPUI. That includes posting content online, producing newsletters, and tracking how all of it performs and engages.

Before joining IU Communications, Leigh notched her belt with 19 years at The Indianapolis Star, getting up to her ears in marketing copywriting, managing special sections, editing for the business desk, copyediting, producing online content, and running the home page.

An IU alumna, she enjoys traveling the world in pursuit of craft beer, rolling out the barrel in a polka band, and experimenting to see whether a tragic gardener like herself can grow peanuts in Indiana.

One thing I learned as a student at IU is that I always wanted to come back. Oh, and that knowledge is power. And commas can save lives. Three things, I learned three things at IU.
