Executive Vice President
Jade Leedham began her journey with Second Story by volunteering at the Culmore Safe Youth Project (CSYP) in 2009. Her passion for supporting youth in crisis stems from her personal experiences immigrating to the United States at the age of nine and growing up in Fairfax County.
After joining the Second Story team in 2010, she spent over three years working with young people in the Annandale and Culmore SYP programs. Seeing firsthand the impact of these programs, Jade was inspired to take on the lead development role in 2013 to provide strategic direction for all of Second Story’s fundraising, outreach, and marketing initiatives. A decade later, Jade remains committed to Second Story’s mission, shifting her focus to support the CEO with organizational management and youth advocacy in 2024 as Executive Vice President.
Jade values time spending her free time with friends and family, especially her niece, Willow. She also enjoys music and exploring cultures and cuisines through travel with her husband, Matt.
