Our Board of Directors
A native of Texas, Leigh Rainwater received her graduate degree in counseling psychology from Boston University.
Upon returning to Austin, Texas, Leigh pursued her professional counseling career in a variety of settings including non-profit agencies, family child guidance centers, and ultimately, private practice.
Leigh also supervises Master’s level social workers and counselors and is a Texas Board approved supervisor for post Master’s level clinicians.
Additionally, she has facilitated numerous training programs for other professionals on topics such as leadership development, art therapy, grief and loss, cultural awareness, and group psychotherapy.
She has presented at professional conferences on working in collaborative teams in addition to obtaining advanced clinical training in creative therapies. Leigh has served on several non-profit boards including Ashera Project, a youth development project, Hill Country Play Therapy Association and the Austin Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.
Leigh and her family moved to Charlotte, NC for cooler temperatures and easier access to Europe. She loves traveling the world, entertaining her menagerie of cats and a dog, running, attending weekend Farmer’s Markets and cooking nutritious meals for her husband, Patrick.
The Founder and President/CEO of Child Proof Advice, Marjorie graduated from college with a degree in Psychology and Management. Her professional experience crossed several industries including Sales, Management, and Human Resources.
Like many, she pursued various career directions until developing her own entrepreneurial dream became a driving passion. A perpetual volunteer and always an advocate for children, Marjorie repeatedly found herself involved in community service activities centered around helping children. She knew it was personally important to draw upon this desire to protect our most valuable asset, our children.
The inspiration for Child Proof Advice was a perfect match incorporating her skills in Marketing, Management and Sales with a love for children. As a result a commitment was born to contribute back to society in a way not yet experienced; in a way offering a longer lasting benefit to others and a more meaningful reward for herself.
