She works closely with colleagues in Washington, DC, to develop messages and materials advocating for better U.S. foreign policy; and with Planned Parenthood Global’s Africa and Latin America regional staff and in-country partners to support their advocacy and service delivery goals. Prior to joining PPFA, Leila spent eight years at the Guttmacher Institute, where she managed communications for all international projects, a portfolio spanning more than a dozen countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.  She holds a certificate in international relations from Sciences Po. Paris, a BA from Sarah Lawrence College, and an MS from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
