As an Associate at Cox Architecture, Leanne is an integral part of the leadership team.

She is passionate about equality and inclusivity, is a member of NAWIC and endeavours to be a good role model for the young and emerging architects she works with.

During her 12 years at Cox, Leanne has been project leader for several major public buildings including the Australian Museum redevelopment currently under construction.
