An early tech adopter and enthusiast since her dad built her first computer, Leanne is also an amateur cook, casual cocktail maker, and lover of opera. Directly out of university, she started a career as a statistician—before statisticians got rebranded as data scientists. She then started her own agency that focused on research, analytics, QA, and testing for web and mobile. For the past several years, she has led research and analytics on design and product teams at Dropbox, Autodesk, New Relic, and Bold. Leanne is now growing a research and strategy practice as the Director of Experience, Strategy, and Insight. She lives here in San Francisco with her wife, teen daughter, two cats, two rats, one fish, a grand piano, and six stringed instruments.
