Get to Know Leigh!

Q: If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be?

A: A travel or wildlife photographer.  Spend a day out in nature in the pacific northwest with a camera.

Q:  What celebrity would you most like to meet for a cup of coffee and why?

A: This is hard.  I’ll answer with a fun one.  Lyle Lovett.  He is one of my favorite musicians to hear live and tells great stories from the stage.  I imagine over coffee the stories would be even better.

Q: What's your favorite holiday?

A: Thanksgiving.  It’s a nice break at my favorite time of year with family and good food, especially cornbread dressing, and lots of college football.

Q: If you could join any past or current music group which would you want to join?

A: I grew up playing piano and flute, so probably with a great symphony orchestra, like in Berlin, London, or Chicago.  I also love the creativity and energy of new musicals like Hamilton.  Maybe a mash up of the two?

Q: What inspires you about the mission of The Moyer Foundation?

A: I’m most inspired by the Foundation’s focus on tough issues that aren’t often talked about, yet the consequences of not dealing with the impact of grief or family member addiction on a child can dramatically alter the course of his or her life.  I am inspired by this organization's focus on providing real help and healing.
