Before working in local news, she was a freelance booking producer at MSNBC where she worked on the 11th Hour with Brian Williams. Leondra frequently booked politicians and political commentators to appear on the show.
Leondra is a 2018 Hampton University graduate and credits her journalism expertise and knowledge to several internships and fellowships while she was an undergraduate.

Leondra’s most memorable internship experience was interning at Good Morning America where she produced stories for GMA’s weekend edition and wrote lifestyle articles for GMA’s website. Her favorite all-time GMA moment was interviewing her role model, Robin Roberts.
Leondra fell in love with journalism at an early age and enjoys telling compelling stories. As a storyteller, she published her first book, "Walking In Your Path" on Amazon and Barnes & Nobles to encourage college students to maximize their college experience through networking, personal development and professional development.
