Personal:
Began playing soccer at the age of four… played club for Eric Dade at Jacksonville Armada FC… came to Vanderbilt because, “I love the city and the school, as well as the level of intensity in both the academic and soccer programs.”… most goals scored in 2015 USYS National Championships… 2016 ENCL most assists… National Honor Society… chose Vanderbilt over Florida State, Florida, and Northwestern... plays the ukulele and hopes to major in Neuroscience.

Coach Ambrose on Leila: “Leila is one of the most technically gifted players in the class.  She also competes with every ounce of her body whenever she plays the game.  She has tremendous instincts and a high level of understanding of the game. With her tactical understanding, Leila is equipped to play in several attacking and defending positions. I love her intensity and competitive nature.  Her Jacksonville FC team has annually been one of the strongest in the country in the age group.”
