While at the University of Virginia School of Law (UVA Law), Ms. Leon won first place in the International Fiscal Association USA Branch 2016 Writing Competition. Her paper, “If the Commission ‘LOBs’ a Pitch to the ECJ, Will It Strike Out Again?”, looks at a 2015 European Commission infringement action against the Netherlands and explains how a potential court case stemming from that action could have a major impact on international tax law. Moreover, Ms. Leon was part of the UVA Law team that won Best Pleading Team in the 2017 KU Leuven International and European Tax Moot Court, which is awarded for highest overall oral argument scores. She also won Best Oral Team for the Defendant with her co-counsel.

During law school, Ms. Leon was on the Editorial Board for the Virginia Law Review and was a member of The Raven Society. Upon graduation, she was a recipient of the Edwin S. Cohen Tax Prize.

Prior to attending law school, Ms. Leon served as an AmeriCorps member while attending the University of Notre Dame and worked as a Multistate Tax Consultant at a large international public accounting and consulting firm.
