Hello, I’m Leigh. I’m the Communications and Community Engagement Specialist for Rebus Community.
I made my way to Rebus and the world of OER via the storytelling world. I was the general manager of Confabulation, a storytelling organization in Montreal. Through my work with Confab, I had the opportunity to work with a lot of people in the academic and start-up world. I helped them use personal storytelling to communicate their work and ideas. “Openness” was a value I ascribed to without knowing. Sharing ideas and making knowledge accessible is really important to me, so I’m excited to be at Rebus, where I get to help others share their work in the form of textbook. I’m also the person behind a lot of the Rebus Community tweets, so if you have any social media questions, I’m your human.
Oh and I’m an experienced copy writer and editor, with a portfolio that covers all sorts of topics.
