Leisa Washington is the first Canadian female WNBA (Women’s National Basketball Association) agent. This accomplishment is a monumental notch in the ‘legacy-in-progress’ of a woman who understands the importance of building and nurturing relationships, as well as fostering opportunities and growth for those who need it.
Those who know and work with Leisa say that she is a woman of integrity who has a lot of compassion for people – especially kids and youth. In the last few years, Leisa has managed to transform her benevolent nature into founding Camda Sports Foundation Canada –– an organization dedicated to funding underprivileged children and their families in recreational sports, while also providing financial assistance so they can have the same opportunities and access to Education, Arts and Music programs that other kids/youth in mid to high income families and neighborhoods have. Leisa is very passionate about the principal mandates of Camda – Sports, Education, and Arts & Music (S.E.A.M).
