Leanne is a Korean adoptee residing in Western Australia (WA). Married with two young children, Leanne is professionally a Chiropractor specialising in paediatric and maternal health and an advocate for health and wellbeing.
Leanne has returned twice to her homeland in Korea. Once for a birth family search trip and the second time to reunite with her birth father and his family. Whilst this was a precious and very special time – it also brought with it emotional challenges which Leanne feels is important to recognise and support with whatever services are available and fit best.
Leanne has a special interest in connecting adoptees with each other as she has personally felt the benefits and support from having a peer group to share experiences and thoughts. Connection is an essential part of being human and Leanne aims to work towards achieving this within the adoptee communities.
