A native of the Tarsus IV Colony, Leigh was raised on her family's farm. During her formative years, she was surrounded by a loving family and extended community however it was always explained to her how fortunate she was. She was raised on the stories of the great famine and Tarsus IV Massacre. Her family was deeply religious and brought her up with the church heavily in her life. Even now she leans on her faith during difficult times, however, Leigh does not seek to proselytize.
Leigh enlisted into Starfleet during her early twenties and was motived to join by the increased tensions surrounding the Bajorian sector. Her youthful idealism perceived a deeply religious people under threat by bullies and joined out of a personal moral obligation.
It was not long after her enlistment that the Dominion War started, which she through as first-class torpedo specialist aboard the Nebula-Class USS Lexington. During the war she earned a respectable but unremarkable combat record for someone in her position. Despite being offered an honorable discharge after the end of hostilities, Leigh re-enlisted wanting to make Starfleet service her career and retained as a small craft engineering.
Shortly after her promotion to Petty officer 3rd Class. Leigh fell pregnant with the child of a Vulcan civilian Research Analyst. The pregnancy was a surprise to all involved, especially the Vulcan Sakorn who had been experiencing Pon farr at the time of conception and had no plans for an offspring at that time. Despite this, once Leigh signaled her intention to keep the child Sakorn presented a compelling argument for the child to be raised on Vulcan away from the dangers ever present on a Starfleet vessel. Leigh gave give to her son, Varek in 2376. He has been raised as planned on Vulcan but sees his mother often during shore leave. Leigh maintains an amicable friendship with the father, Sakorn.
Leigh continued to rise through the enlisted ranks often in an engineering position until she reached the rating of Chief Petty Officer. As a Chief Leigh has taken a verity of leadership roles in the shuttle bay and damage control central, she also completed a secondment in a marine engineering platoon. With the ambition of gaining the rating of Command Master Chief before retirement, Leigh completed many command courses and accepted a rotation at Starfleet Academy as an assistant engineering instructor believing this to bolster her chances of achieving the top enlisted position aboard a Federation vessel. Unfortunately for her plans she was promoted to Warrant Officer, much to her dismay, after completing her assignment at Starfleet Academy.
With time to contemplate her promoted to Warrant Officer, Leigh accepted the change and even enjoyed the challenge that has come from her role as Ship's Boatswain aboard the USS Gorkon.
