Meet the WINC Team: Leigh Anne Gray

Job Title:
Advertising Sales Consultant
Log Cabin Democrat

How long have you been at the Log Cabin Democrat?
I’ve been with the Log Cabin for a little over 7 years.

Description of your job title at the Log Cabin Democrat?
I am an advertising sales consultant, therefore, I am responsible for helping advertisers, whether a private individual or a business, find advertising solutions for their specific needs.

What do you attribute your success to?
First and foremost, I attribute any success I’ve achieved to God and God alone. I’ve also been blessed with amazing parents who sacrificed everything to give my brothers and me a good life. Their work ethic has inspired and challenged me to set and go after my own goals with great determination.

What do you enjoy most about your job?
In recent years, I found a particular niche with the local real estate market; interacting with agents and helping market their properties is the thing I enjoy most about my job.

Is there something in your job history of which you are particularly proud?
In 2013, I was named to the Morris Publishing Group President’s Club. The award recognizes the best and brightest sales executives throughout the company and I was honored to be a recipient of this award.

What do enjoy in your spare time?
Spare time…what’s that? In addition to my full-time job, I’m also a full-time student. I’m currently pursuing my Bachelor of Science degree in Leadership and Ministry from Central Baptist College. While I look forward graduation in just a few short months, I’m also busy applying to graduate schools. I have a huge heart for helping brokenhearted people and my plan, Lord willing, is to pursue a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. Ideally, I’d love to find a way to blend ministry and counseling together, whether in a church, non-profit or private practice setting. I currently facilitate the GriefShare program at my church, and over the years, I’ve watched my love for helping others blossom into a full-blown passion. My son, Matthew, also plays football for Conway Junior High, so our Thursdays are busy cheering for him!

Describe your family:
I met and married the love of my life, Tim Gray, last year. We’re closing in on our one-year anniversary next month. Between the two of us, we have four children.
