Leah Blake was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. She studied at BYU for her undergrad, earning a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics Education. She taught algebra 1 for five years in a middle school and high school before deciding to change careers and go to law school. Her interest in law and religion began when she served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Indonesia. That experience taught her the important role that religious freedom plays in people’s lives. When Leah is not working or studying, she enjoys sewing, cheering on Dallas sports teams, and spending time with her family and friends.
