Leah Burns

Marketing Project Mananger


Leah Burns is a native of Charleston and is passionate about her hometown and the hospitality industry that thrives on its popularity. After graduating from the College of Charleston with a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology, she got her real estate license and immediately began working for a locally owned real estate and property management company on Sullivan’s Island.

Ten years later, she joined Avocet in 2007 where she is now part of the marketing team as well as a Villa Specialist for St. Barth Exclusives, AHG’s luxury vacation rental company focused solely on St. Barthelemy.

Growing up in the low county has taught Leah to love the water and you can find her boating, beaching or fishing in her spare time. She has travelled to 7 Caribbean islands over the years and hopes to visit many more.
