Leah Albright-Byrd serves as the Executive Director of Health Movement, an organization that prepares senior leaders of nonprofits for transformational impact as they advance health equity. She has faithfully served her community as an advocate, direct service provider, and leader in the nonprofit sector for the last 18 years.
In 2011, she founded and directed a California-based nonprofit that provided an array of services to child and adult survivors of human trafficking. While leading that effort, she became a national and international advocate for the cause, promoted legislative change, and appeared on various media outlets to promote public awareness. She eventually received congressional honor for her activism efforts in 2016.
Due to the high level of burnout associated with such passionate work, she made the decision to focus her energy on various consulting projects and it was during that time that she developed an interest in uplifting other nonprofit leaders. Because of her intimate knowledge of the needs of nonprofit leaders, a passion for upstream work, and a desire for community transformation, the opportunity to lead Health Movement became the natural progression of her life’s work.
Leah possesses a bachelor’s degree in Counseling Psychology and Theology from William Jessup University and coaching certifications from Western Seminary. She lives in Rowlett, TX with her dog Charlie Rose, is a yoga enthusiast, and loves biking.
