Thanks to Leanne for helping me see a world of opportunities that I never imagined . . . her guidance and support has allowed me to tackle many challenges, even failing, but the other side of failure is opportunity, and I have grown in courage and learned from my mistakes and triumphed.Carly Medley
I mention you often when people ask me how I got the idea of setting up The Wedding Atelier. You inspired me to set up a new store . . . and we are fully booked.Laura Dols
I supervised [Leanne] in a large research project . . . concerned with documentation and analysis of the historic infrastructure of the Goldfields Pipeline, a 550Km pipeline from Mundaring Weir near Perth to Kalgoorlie. It was a real project with the National Trust of WA as client run through Research Institute of Cultural Heritage. Leanne conducted this very large undertaking in an exemplary and professional manner producing the required research reports for the National Trust on time. Her research was used in the successful application of the Goldfields Pipeline as World Heritage.Prof John Stephens
