Leanne’s ultimate mission in life is to inspire people to be the best version of themselves. She does this through sharing her story of the obstacles she has overcome in order to walk in her purpose.

In addition to this she has a passion for healthcare, and currently works as a medical doctor with interests in Anaesthetics. In 2018 she co-founded a charity – The Armitage Foundation – which exists to increase diversity across UK medical schools. As a result of the work she has been doing through The Armitage Foundation, she was awarded the 2018 UK Queen’s Young Leaders award by Her Majesty the Queen at Buckingham Palace. In 2020 she was named a LinkedIn Top Voice and has featured on several news channels including Channel 4 News, ITV News, BBC Radio, the Sunday Telegraph, the Daily Telegraph and the Evening Standard. More recently, Leanne was recognised by the Black Cultural Archives as one of 40 black leaders from across the UK who are positively impacting the future of British society.

In her spare time Leanne enjoys exercising – she is an avid gym goer. She also loves socialising with friends and dancing!
