Women in technology: Leah Towns
By Melissa Brandon on 01/05/2018
"I chose Schwab because I sensed a drive for technical excellence balanced with a focus on fostering growth and learning."
Leah Towns is relatively new to Schwab, having started in mid-2016. She is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in computer science. Currently, Leah works on front-end web development for Advisor Services and is currently immersed in a project for advisors to deposit checks online.
A Texas native, Leah says she was drawn to Schwab because of the collaborative culture and the ability to learn about the financial industry, which she finds to be personally beneficial. In her spare time, Leah enjoys hiking, her church community, and board games.
