Leigh A. Peterson



What I am all about.

Leigh has enjoyed success in various branches of the entertainment industry since moving to the Cleveland area from Chicago in 1998. In Chicago, she studied TV/Film production at Columbia College Chicago and finished her BA at The University of Akron in Communications/PR. After graduating, Leigh spent three years as the PR Assistant at the Carousel Dinner Theater. She's been a professional singer since 2003, most recently on various products for American Greetings as well as in her wedding band of 11 years, The Avenue, of which she is a founding member. Leigh recently filmed the role of Liv's Mother in the independent film Swipe Right, due out this summer, and appears in a car commercial with her favorite MLB pitchers, Corey Kluber and Andrew Miller, with fellow Eat Like a Bird cast member Ben Merold.

Reference from Des Matelske, the Director or Swipe Right: "I had the pleasure of working with Leigh on the set of my film “Swipe Right” and she is an absolutely fantastic person and actress. She showed up early to her call times and was always very patient between camera setups and long shoot days. Leigh has the skills to pull and push the audience’s emotions and has definitely enhanced the overall film by taking on the character she played and making it exactly what I imagined in my head. I hope to one day work with her again!"
