Cathy Leeke

Cathy Leeke is our South Carolina State Director of Engagement! She grew up in a military family so she has moved around a good bit, most recently from Atlanta to Charleston. She received a Bachelor’s in Music and Economics from Vanderbilt, and a MBA from Georgia State. Cathy has been married to her high school sweetheart for 15 years. They have 3 children, and usually a few more through foster care. She is a triathlete, and just recently just finished her first half Ironman. She runs a local support group for parents raising gluten free children, especially those with celiac disease. She loves pizza and traveling to Disney, the Ritz Reynolds Plantation, and the Restoration in Downtown Charleston. As the SC State Director, Cathy has the opportunity to meet with churches and pastors, families, and community partners and see how we can serve alongside them in the ministry of orphan care. Her very favorite part about working at Lifeline is when a family hears the calls and nudges of the Holy Spirit and in obedience says “YES!”. For her, seeing a family walk in obedience to the Lord is amazing!
