Leigh Cook

I was born and raised in the Philadelphia suburbs and feel fortunate that my husband, Paul, and I can raise our children, Chase, Conner, Cameron, and Gavin, around the same area where I grew up. I like to keep active when I’m not at work and often go for runs. We especially enjoy traveling and making memories as a family, but you can usually find me spending time at the baseball and soccer fields watching my children play the sports they love.
