About Leila

Hi! Thanks for visiting my site. Learn a bit more about me or download my resume.


I spent 17+ years as a TV News Producer at Emmy award-winning news stations in Michigan and California. During that time, I lead newsroom teams on the production and delivery of current events for 250,000+ viewers per hour on average.

I’m also one of the founders of the nonprofit group Organizing for Action SF. I recruit new members, organize events, build partnerships with thought leaders that have a shared mission with OFA, and distribute information to our members and those interested in OFA.

In my free time, I mentor and volunteer with my local farmer’s market CUESA, the Asian American Journalists Association, the Professional Businesswomen of California, and Glide Memorial Church.


I’m proficient in the following: Final Cut Pro, iMovie, Avid, Edius, Dropbox, ENPS, iNews, Squarespace, WordPress, Google Drive/Analytics, CRM, Trello, Action Network, Mailchimp, DSLR audio/video operation, Tagboard, Lakana, Wayin, TopicPulse, MediaPortal, AP Style, Bitcentral
