Leah Matthews moved to the neighborhood 5 years ago. She lives on St. Charles Ave with her husband Todd, son Jonah, and their two lively boxers. Leah is currently the Street Captain for the lower half of St. Charles Ave, and in addition, she serves on the VHCA Summerfest Committee as Co-Chair of the Summerfest Parade.
She moved to Atlanta in 2006, and immediately fell in love with The Virginia-Highland and knew it was where she would make her permanent home. Leah owns 2 businesses, one local that partners with many of the schools, churches, and businesses in the neighborhood and surrounding areas, and one online that helps other business owners around the world. When not working, her interests include cooking, wine, travel, yoga, and volunteer work. Her interests in the neighborhood would be parks, safety, and fundraising events. That being said, she has a wide range of skills and is willing to jump in and help in other capacities as well.
Leah hopes to become even more involved in the neighborhood and the VHCA to ensure that The Virginia-Highland will continue to be a great place to live for years to come.
