Lea Singh

Lea Singh is a full-time mother and homemaker living in Ottawa, Canada. In a former life she graduated from Harvard Law School,  passed the New York Bar and went to work for a major law firm. At the age of 27, however, she realised that working long evenings in a Manhattan office was unlikely to help her realise her chief ambition in life—to become a wife and mother—so she took a step down the career ladder and began looking for a husband. Mission accomplished, and with a growing family, she dreams of being able to sew, play family songs on the piano and cook without a cookbook.
