Leah Veldhuisen

Leader

Leah is a graduate student in the Ecology & Evolutionary Biology department, and is interested in plant ecology and community phylogenetics. She loves field work and identifying plants while out and about. Prior to starting at the University of Arizona, she led interpretive hike, snowshoe and ski tours in Aspen, Colorado and helped new undergraduate students on orientation camping trips. There are few outdoor activities she’ll say no to, but is especially happy when she’s skiing big powder days, trail running or on a long hike.
