Leigh joined Jackson Spalding’s Chick-fil-A crew in 2013 and is now one of the senior leaders on that account. She oversees strategy, messaging and project management for the chain’s national campaigns and corporate initiatives, which often sends her to markets like Los Angeles or New York, or perching down at the company’s headquarters here in Atlanta.
Earlier in her time with us, Leigh also contributed to our sports practice, helping launch the College Football Hall of Fame and the SEC Network, among others. These high-profile events put her up close with celebrities and athletes, but her favorite brush with fame so far is meeting Snoop Dogg at an ESPN premier night at the Hall.
Her resume prior to JS includes five years as the Director of Communications for Holy Innocents Episcopal Church, a 2,500-member Atlanta parish, where she managed everything from website development, to social media and fund-raising campaigns. Leigh began her career as a Business Travel Coordinator for Atlanta’s 5-star InterContinental Hotel, coordinating special events and overseeing high-value accounts.
She’s a devoted Auburn Tiger who graduated there with a B.A. in Public Relations. Today she serves on the school’s Advisory Board, providing real-world insights to faculty and students. Her loyalty also extends to her high school at Holy Innocents’, where she is serving a second term on the Board of Directors.
A life-long tennis enthusiast, Leigh plays year-round with teams that have both won city finals honors. That’s a good thing, since her other hobby is cooking sweet treats, which she tries to share with husband Brian.
