Leah Berkhoff


Leah was born in Manitoba and lived in a number of areas in Canada before settling in Lethbridge in 1987. She and her husband Sergio have three boys between them, along with three grandchildren.

Leah recently retired from Lethbridge College where she worked as the Intellectual Property Officer focusing on copyright for staff and students.When asked what she would do with her time in retirement, the first thing Leah said she’d do was volunteer for a community organization.

“I care about people and trying to help them achieve all of the positives they can in their lives or in their work,” she says. “That was my philosophy in my working career so when the opportunity to volunteer with the United Way came up - I jumped on it!”

Leah is an avid cook, golfer, gardener and loves to travel the country by motorcycle with her husband.
