Meet The Team


Leah Cordy

Founder, CEO

Leah is the Founder & CEO of Hope's Landing which she launched in March 2021. After working at a women's safe house, she was inspired to find new ways to help survivors get back on their feet, and thus Hope's Landing was born. She earned her BA and MBA from Heidelberg University, making her a proud first generation college student. She also currently works for Geenex Solar as the Director of Community Relations.


Marrisa Orzechowski

Executive Director

Originally from Dayton, Marrisa earned her bachelor's degree from Bowling Green State University in Criminal Justice and went on to complete her master's in Criminal Justice, specializing in victims and offenders. Marrisa is a registered advocate who has experience working with survivors in multiple shelters across Northwest Ohio, as well as experience with working with survivors in the mental health sector on the suicide prevention team. Marrisa is also currently the Anti-Human Trafficking Project Coordinator at First Step in Fostoria. 


Megan Vesely

Social Media Manager

Megan joined our team in November 2023 and has been a great addition to our staff ever since. She is originally from Louisville, Ohio but has spent the last 5 years in Tiffin as she has studied for both her undergrad and graduate degrees at Heidelberg University. She loves all things that allow her to showcase her creativity, which has made marketing the perfect fit for her. 

Production Manager

Our production manager is a survivor of domestic violence herself. To keep her safe we don't share any personal information about her.

She is the person in charge of overseeing our other survivors as they make the Hope's Landing products. She works hard to create new products, perfect the products we have, and set the standard for our products. Our production manager creates a positive and safe environment for our survivors to work in.

Production Assistants

Our Survivors

We employ survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence as our production assistants. They are the ones who actually make the products from hand pouring the candles to mixing together our scrubs. By working at Hope's Landing they are empowered by receiving fair pay, learning skills, working on themselves, and by having access to the resources and support they need. For safety reasons we don't share information about our production assistants.
