In her role as Controller at HDG, Leigh enjoys the logic and math behind an always balanced puzzle. She equally enjoys the balance that the human resources side of her job brings, looking away from the numbers and interacting with HDG’s great staff to help them answer questions and resolve issues. In her personal time, Leigh enjoys spending time with her family and especially her grandson, Nathan. She also enjoys playing in a competitive pool league with her husband as well as fishing, camping, or any other outdoor activity – except skiing! She also loves spending time with her sweet dog Morgan, and her two cats, Harley and Jax.
