Leah Cher Pump is the president and CEO of the LadyLike Foundation. After being an elementary school teacher for 9 years and a principal for 2 years in the private school system in Los Angeles, Leah’s vision for starting this company began in 2004 when her pastor, Dr. R.A. Williams Jr., appointed her as the director of the Youth and Young Adult Ministry at the McCoy Memorial Baptist Church in Los Angeles, California. As the Youth and Young Adult director, Leah implemented many successful programs, one of which was the “LadyLike” class. At her church, “LadyLike” was designed to teach young women through the word of God, how to be virtuous and well rounded.
