Leah is also a very passionate food & consumer health activist. She got her start organizing activists when California attempted to label GMOs through a proposition in 2012 by springing into action and organizing over 650 bloggers from across the United States & Canada the educate the public about the lack of transparency in the food system.

Influencers attending ShiftCon are able to attend workshops with some of the most brilliant minds of our time. From scientists that focus on hormone disruption to CEOs that have created solutions with nontoxic products, ShiftCon brings them all together annually.
