Our family always attended the events that were produced by the wonderful Toluca Lake Committees. I wanted to become more involved in the TL community. Becoming a volunteer member on the TLHOA was a great way to be more involved in the neighborhood that we loved. I reached out to the TLHOA and was in charge of expanding our membership then I moved on to the executive board and took over the Secretary position.Leah attended Loyola University and owns her own Boutique Casting Company.

Being able to give back to the neighborhood where she loves eating, shopping, and caroling has been fun and challenging as a Board member for Membership and the Events Committee..
