Leigh Hilford

Leigh supports the expansion of Flamboyan’s national reach through the development of product offerings that promote and employ its family engagement approach. She believes that education is one of our most powerful tools to create a more equitable and connected world.

Prior to joining Flamboyan, Leigh worked in development at the Convergence Center for Policy Resolution. She holds a Bachelor’s degree with honors from the University of Texas at Austin, and earned degrees in Plan II Honors and English Honors.

Leigh is a Texas native and, despite what people say about DC, she thinks it is welcome escape from the Texas heat. She also loves to spend time reading, writing, and hiking.


Who was your favorite teacher in school? My favorite teacher in school was my sixth grade teacher Mrs. DeBusk. She pushed us to work hard and explore our passions!
