Leah Pixley


Leader, helper, model—and daredevil. Leah Pixley brings it all to Sentara as a manager of the Sentara Southside East & West Sleep Centers. Remembering her days racing in 4×4 dirt drag races in addition to her many roles at Sentara, Leah says she wants to provide something that makes a difference in someone’s life.


“Several doors of opportunity have been opened to me over the last 44+ years, that I kinda snuck right on through the door and grabbed it.”

At Sentara, You Belong
