Professional Profile

Leigh Perkins writes, edits and proofreads print and digital communications in support of the Lynn University brand. She is editor of LynnSight magazine and assistant editor of and writer for Lynn magazine. She is also responsible for the editorial components of Arts, Culture and Ideas materials: brochures, ads and marketing communications.

Her byline has appeared in dozens of national magazines and higher education publications, and she has held staff positions at newspapers, magazines and colleges.

A Palm Beach County native, Perkins graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Arts in English literature.
