A dedicated member of the Share Our Strength Colorado Leadership Council since 2017.
Leann is driven by a passion to be a voice for Share Our Strength Colorado, empowering individuals to understand the importance of reducing childhood hunger by both having access to food as well as providing tools to budget, shop and prepare nutritious food. Leann joined the Share Our Strength Leadership Council in July of 2017 and is a member of the Advocacy and Communications Committee. Based on prior experience, Leann has learned the importance of having strong leaders behind big issues that are facing our local communities and country today and is so impressed with the leadership talent on the Leadership Council.

In the fall of 2017, Leann sold her company, Homewatch Caregivers International which she had taken from a national to international brand, successfully working with franchisees in the US, Canada, and Latin America. As CEO of the company, she spent a number of years advocating for seniors and the disabled at the local and national level. She was a member of the Home Care Association of America Board of Directors for over 5 years.
