Leda has fourteen years of environmental and consumer nonprofit experience, successfully managing and fundraising for grassroots, national and international projects.
Leda’s work has encompassed a range of issues, including species protection, forest conservation, energy, environment & health, and green businesses.
Most recently, Leda was the Acting Executive Director for Finding Species, a nonprofit that uses photography as a niche to protect species biodiversity—from the United States to the Amazon, and she remains on the Finding Species Board. Previous to that, Leda worked for Resource Conservation Alliance to protect forests from a “markets” perspective—advancing alternatives to ancient forest wood products.
Leda is one of the cofounders of EcoWomen—a community of women who foster networking and collaboration for a healthy environment. Leda speaks Ukrainian and Spanish and has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Toronto with a double major in environmental science and environment & resource management and a minor in zoology.
