Kaitlyn Leeb, Board Member, Jake’s House
Kaitlyn Leeb is a talented Canadian actress with a heart of gold and a passion for philanthropy. While she has featured in many films and television series, she is best known to audiences for her work on CBC’s Heartland, Freeform’s Shadowhunters, and season 2 of Slasher on Netflix.
Surpassing Kaitlyn’s dedication to her career is her commitment to her family and to her community. Devoted wife to Ted, Kaitlyn gained new perspective when she became a mother to Avery. Her daughter pushed her to want to be the best version of herself, and to hope more than ever that our society becomes more responsible, more inclusive, and more loving. Grateful for her career success and her family blessings, Kaitlyn believes she has a responsibility to give back.
A long-time friend and supporter of Jake’s House, Kaitlyn took on an official ambassadorship role in early 2018. Today, as our National Ambassador, she contributes greatly to the charity’s impact. Kaitlyn regularly engages with students, families, stakeholders and partners; participates in public speaking engagements and community events; has been featured in several promotional videos; supports our digital awareness-building campaigns; and inspires and motivates others to understand, care and take action. Committed, compassionate and eager to offer support, Kaitlyn is one of Jake’s House’s greatest advocates.
