Leigh Ann Gong

Chief Financial Officer

Leigh Ann provides oversight of all finance, accounting and reporting activities supporting the overall mission and goals of Church and Society. She earned a degree in accounting from the University of Maryland University College and is a Certified Public Accountant in the state of Virginia.

Leigh Ann grew up in Vietnam during and after the Vietnam War. She came to the U.S. to join her sister who had been one of the Vietnamese boat refugees. Her sister served as a sponsor for Leigh Ann and her parents under a U.S. humanitarian immigration program. It took many years of hard work and dedication because she knew no English upon arrival. Having grown up under an oppressive regime, Leigh Ann is proud to work at Church and Society because of the Board’s work for justice and peace. She sees Church and Society as contributing to democracy and transforming the world to make people’s lives better.
