Model Kathy Leutner is no stranger to Washington. Raised in Chantilly, Va., about half an hour outside the city, Leutner would often come to the capital with her family to shop, visit museums, and enjoy the cherry blossoms each spring. She began modeling after she was discovered by a talent agent while shopping at Tysons Galleria at age 18, but modeling soon took a backseat to education when she enrolled at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Va. During her last semester, she commuted between JMU and New York City, where she was frequently booked in commercial, editorial, and bridal shoots. Recently, she was featured as the face of Self magazine’s 2009 “Self Beauty Awards.” Leutner is now a full-time model based out of New York with Click Model Management. When she’s not travelling for work, she spends her time volunteering at the SPCA and the Lazarus Foundation.
