Leigh is the Executive Director at Plough Towers, a Section 8 HUD high rise for seniors over 62 years of age and those individuals under 62 years of age with mobility impairments. Leigh has 19 years of experience in the field of elder care; ranging from adult day services, Alzheimer’s care as well as many years in the not for profit sector. She has a degree from the University of Alabama in Criminal Justice and Sociology, but found her passion working with the aging population. A lifelong Memphian, Leigh states “Being a part of Plough Towers is very rewarding. To see the positive impact living here has for our residents is wonderful. Both our staff and our Board of Directors are always looking for ways that not only help residents get needed services, but they also are seeking ways to give the ‘gravy’ that really gives our residents a quality life.”
