Leigh’s son has Asperger’s Syndrome. As any mother would, Leigh spent countless hours researching the disease. Leigh discovered that her son doesn’t filter out toxins, including those found in cleaning products, as well as the majority of the population. So Leigh came to WVE to learn more and host a green cleaning party. She participated in a media spokesperson training led by WVE to gain talking points about the problem of toxic chemicals in cleaning products. As a veteran blogger, Leigh wrote about her party on the Dallas Moms Blog on the Dallas Morning News website, reaching far beyond the guests at her party to spread her message to thousands of people. She continues to raise her voice on the health impacts of toxic chemicals as the Assistant Editor for AutismSpot.com and as a Guest Blogger for the Dallas Moms. We’ve gotten to know Leigh well at WVE, and we’re continually impressed with her passionate advocacy efforts.
