She lives in Utah, where she works as a therapist for Wasatch Family Therapy, empowering individuals throughout ages and stages to know and love all parts of themselves; in her free time, you’ll find Leanne attending a local bluegrass show, riding bikes or skiing with friends, or enjoying whiskey at home with her partner and cats.
“There were many things I thoroughly enjoyed about being an American Studies major; most of all, my favorite was the opportunity to work closely with staff and faculty, who demonstrate genuine care for students, to construct the degree path reflective of both my personal and professional interests. This made the major truly interdisciplinary, which prompted me to engage in enriched conversation with staff, faculty, and students at a time when American society and culture was at an inflection point; these conversations also made apparent the existing dominant narratives which construct our society and culture, and the need the amplify the voices of members within minority communities. I would recommend this major to a self-motivated student, interested in defying a traditional degree path into the intricacies of what it means to live in the United States.” ~ Leanne Rohrbach
