Meet Leah Defigueiredo, our Customer Success Implementation Manager! She onboards districts and provides continuous support for our customers.

If you had to teach a subject, what would it be?

Probably Music, more specifically Orchestra. I have played the cello since I was 8 years old and I've studied music theory for years. In college, I used to play weddings in my spare time.

Do you have any pets?

I have two dogs. One is a Pembroke welsh corgi and the other is a Maltese mix. They live with my parents in Northern California so the ParentSquare office dogs help fill the void :)

Favorite quote?

"If you think adventure is dangerous try routine, it's lethal." - Paulo Coelho

Favorite book and/or movie?

I'm a bit obsessed with the Lord of the Rings. I've read the books multiple times and every Christmas my sister and I do a marathon of the movies - extended edition of course.

What’s your favorite holiday?

I would have to say Christmas. I have young nieces and nephews and it is so fun to see their faces light up when opening their presents.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

I really want to visit South Africa. I've heard so many great things and it's definitely at the top of my list.

Would you rather explore a new planet or the deepest part of the ocean?

Neither one! The idea of doing either one gives me the heebie jeebies.

What are you most likely doing on a Saturday afternoon?

You can probably find me out hiking the trails in Santa Barbara and Montecito. My favorite hike in town at the moment is Tangerine falls.

What do you like most about working for ParentSquare?

The people! Both internally and externally. Our team is so talented and we have some of the best customers out there.

Leah has been at ParentSquare since September 5th, 2017.
