Leah Sobon


I have been writing professionally for almost 20 years and have been featured in magazines, digital magazines, print newspaper and digital newspaper, and multiple websites. Most mediums have been local to me or Canadian based. Alongside being a freelance writer, I am also a paramedic of 11 years. I have education in journalism, plus I’m currently working on my English degree part-time. I also have a paramedicine diploma.

Alongside working as a full-time paramedic, I am a mother of three, dog mom of three, freelance content creator/copywriter (my amazing and fun side hustle) and a black belt instructor at a local martial arts school.

This all sounds hectic, but it contributes so importantly to the values that I hold near and dear. My experiences as a paramedic are unparalleled and my views and beliefs of how precious life actually is, are amplified by witnessing so much loss.

I write opinion and advice pieces that evoke thought, emotion, and consideration. I like to speak on topics that others might shy away from. When I wrote ‘Sharing Tragedy’ (in the middle of the night, as that was when it flew from my fingertips), I realized that there are so many unknowns about death and the value of life. I am encouraged by fear, I embrace vulnerability, and I love navigating challenges.
