Leigh Cocanougher

Education Program Manager

Leigh joined the Davis Phinney Foundation in September 2020, stepping into the field of health and wellness education after having spent much of her career in international and environmental education. Her drive to help others live their best, most joyful lives led her to the Foundation, where her role combines several of her favorite things—sharing stories and advice about whole-life wellbeing and connecting people around the world.

Some of Leigh’s other favorite things include books, beaches, baking, laughter, tulips, tennis, Taylor Swift circa 1989, alliteration, and mountains. Her heart is most at home by the ocean, and she is a firm believer in Isak Dinesen’s advice that much happiness can be found via salt water: “sweat, tears, or the sea.”
