Marketers don’t just own the brand—they own the entire customer experience, but they get stuck in competing priorities, lack of resources, budget constraints, you name it. Leigh’s strategic branding and marketing agency, Freedom, clears the way for innovation by eliminating the noise so you can act smarter and faster. Instead of billable hours, you get unlimited amounts of personalized, on-demand advice, insight and ideas.

Before launching her own company, Leigh led branding and content marketing at a health non-profit and was VP in Ogilvy’s social@Ogilvy practice, where she led branding, digital and social strategy for public and private sector clients including Enroll America, FDA, the White House Historical Association and Five Guys. Prior to Ogilvy, Leigh led branding and digital strategy teams at several leading digital agencies in the DC area, working with clients such as Biotechnology Industry Organization, COPD Foundation, Hershey, Loyola University Maryland, Parature and U.S. Department of Education.

Leigh has a Ph.D. in branding history and theory from Binghamton University and is a highly sought after speaker on branding and digital marketing. Recent engagements include South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive and the Girl Scouts National Convention.
