C3 Board Member & Board Secretary - Leigh Busby
Leigh started her career working in human resources for high technology companies before answering a call to work in the nonprofit world. She now works as a Development & Outreach Manager for the YWCA of Richmond based on her passion for helping kids and supporting families create a better future. She enjoys collaborating in a team environment and discovering unique ways to solve problems and accomplish goals. She has a bachelor’s degree from the University of North Caroline at Chapel Hill and is a tarheel for life!
Leigh loves exercising her creative side and was drawn to C3’s focus on thinking outside the box, as well as working with such a unique and fun group of creative professionals.
Favorite Richmond Spot/Activity/Restaurant . . .
Anything on the river! On a beautiful weekend, you’ll find Leigh outside and often running or hanging out by the James River or in one of Richmond’s many fabulous parks.
Creative Side . . .
I love the idea of creating something (even if the end product doesn’t quite fit the vision) and learning from people. I also love being challenged and working with a talented group of people (beer is often flowing) to brainstorm new ideas or solve problems.
