Leila holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering from California State University, Sacramento. With a passion for out-of-the-box thinking, Leila has been spearheading an industry-wide shift toward transforming how engineers connect, view and share content in the marketing and branding space. Leila and her family are passionate about causes that promote women's’ empowerment, education, health and human services, arts and culture. After serving on numerous boards in leadership roles, she recently became part of the Development Committee for Project Concern International (PCI), a non-profit organization with a mission to empower people to enhance health, end hunger and overcome hardship. She is honored to serve as co-chair at PCI’s Hands Across Borders 2017 event and honorary chair of PCI’s 2018 event. Leila is an avid reader and learner and loves spending time with her husband, two teenage sons, family and friends. She hopes that she can impact the engineering industry by combining her academic and professional background, love of technology and entrepreneurship skills to improve the lives of individuals in her community and around the world.
