Leah McCollough, former Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations at Overlake Hospital in Bellevue, Washington, recently joined the Ashesi team to lead our fundraising efforts. Leah has over 15 years of experience working in development, and currently sits on the boards of the Northwest Development Officers Association and Hopelink. Leah's wealth of experience in fundraising will be an invaluable asset and we feel very lucky to have her on our team. As Ashesi's Director of Development, Leah will manage our office in Seattle and lead the strategic planning for our fundraising efforts. She genuinely likes working in development because at its best "you are helping people do something that makes them feel good. What can be bad about that?"
