You’ll often find Leah enjoying an autobiography and following Formula 1 when she’s not transforming financial processes and making systems run more efficiently at McCoy Rockford. Leah’s passion and gift for working with systems extends beyond numbers. Fun fact — she is also a Texas Master Naturalist and has a touch of knowledge about local ecosystems. 

Prior to joining the team, Leah was Acting CFO for cybersecurity investment firm Cyber Badger and spent almost 15 years as Vice President of Finance at Discover Network. Leah holds a bachelor's degree in accounting and finance from Loyola University, New Orleans, and an MBA from the University of Houston. She is proud to be the first person in her family to graduate from college and served as an intern with the internationally recognized and respected organization INROADS. She began her career with Big 4 accounting firms KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers, and she brings broad knowledge and experience to the McCoy Rockford team.

With more than two decades of experience, Leah has established herself as an innovative, forward-thinking leader with high-level financial acumen across a broad range of areas. As CFO, Leah is responsible for managing and running the organization's finance activities, including business planning, budgeting, forecasting and negotiations. In her role, she is driven by the desire to take the organization to the next level of success and inspire others to reach their full potential.

Outside of the office, Leah has been known to turn up the volume on 80s and disco tunes while attending a spin class. You’ll also find her traveling with her family to places like Cozumel, London and Paris. When warm weather strikes, you’ll find her enjoying New Orleans-style snowballs and searching for the best lazy rivers. 

Favorite Commercial Furniture Piece: I love the cubby chair with the table and footstool — the Brody WorkLounge. It’s really nice because you’re focused in that space and there’s even a light if you need it. To top it off, a footrest makes it ergonomic and comfortable. This has become my go-to deep work lunch spot.
