Leigh Holbrook, Founder & Chief Adventurer

The idea for OneHome Collective emerged as a way for me to be in the world in a meaningful way and to bring my community together to create something beautiful in a world that seemed to be quickly becoming a very tough place to exist. It took a little bit of time, a lot of love, and tons of community collaboration – but here we are! The 1HC community is a family. We all seek to find our own way to participate in making the world a better place for everyone and to connect in a deeper and more authentic way.

My background in comparative religious and cultural studies has been a huge asset and helps me always be aware of what I can learn from others – how my life is enriched and experiences of the world deepened by the friendships I have with people all over the world. I have a few special skills, but am mostly a Jane of all trades and have a deep desire to connect and create beauty and compassion with those I get to encounter. It is my sincere hope that everyone who chooses to participate in our little family will find in it a path to compassion, meaning, and a new way of being.
