Meet The Leaders

Angie Leavens
Chicktime Tampa Founder & Leader


Why I serve a leadership role with Chicktime:
I’ve always been a driven individual with a passion of serving others. Similarly, I love getting my friends together for some much-needed girl time, and Chicktime allows for both of these things. I want to encourage other women to be passionate about a cause that betters our community. I’m confident that as a result it will allow each of us to lead a more empowered and purposeful life, as it simultaneously betters the lives of the children and teens we will serve.


My hobbies & interest:
I love planning stay-cations with my daughter at Disney World, not so much a hobby, but Disney itself is something that we get to enjoy together. Also, being a boutique owner for women’s clothes is like hobby for me because it is something I love to do and even better that it’s my job! I have been able to connect me with amazing women and make life-long friendships, built self-confidence in myself and others, and created a strong bond between my sister and me. I love doing my own manicures, playing around with makeup, DIY projects, and all things girly. Oh, and shopping… Target is my go-to for retail therapy, but Amazon has my heart too!


My Passions & Gifts:
Education has always been of upmost value to me. I love to learn and to teach, I’m sure that one day I will venture back into the classroom or school setting. For now, my passion is watching my daughter grow, experiencing little moments with her that are big in the grand scheme of things. I work hard to be able to have what I like to call “middle of the day moments” with her, and everything I do stems from the love that she ignited in me from the moment she was born.


Elizabeth Burchell
Chicktime Tampa Co-Leader


Why I serve a leadership role with Chicktime:

Hello! My name is Elizabeth, I am a mother to three young girls and the wife of a hardworking, loving man. I love God, fresh flowers, and a quiet day at the beach. I am an attorney with a focus on child welfare and family matters. Every day at the office I face a new challenge with these complex and emotional cases. But serving the needs of children and families is my calling. To balance out the hard days at work I believe in surrounding oneself with positive people, smiling at strangers and helping those in need. Every day is a new beginning. Take a deep breath, smile, and start again.

I was honored when asked to join a leadership role in Chicktime. Working in child welfare law my entire legal career puts me in a unique position to lead our volunteers and educate them on the local child welfare system and what they can do to help serve their needs.  I truly have a passion for helping kids in care, especially the high risk ones that are often forgotten. So I am honored to be a part of this organization. 

My hobbies & interest:

Between work and raising my children I don’t have a lot of extra time. When I do, I love to get crafty or get outdoors- nothing beats a quiet day at the beach or a fun day at the pool with the kids. 

My Passions & Gifts:

I’ve been told I’m a good listener and problem solver. I tend to be one people naturally come to seeking advice, I guess that’s one of the qualities that makes me great for my profession. I am able to objectively navigate emotional situations and guide others through difficult times. I am passionate about helping others and being a voice for the voiceless.

Thank you!

Chicktime Tampa Co-Leader


I serve a leadership role with Chicktime:
From a young age I have enjoyed helping others. I enjoy watching people grow and helping them toreach goals that they have set for themselves. It gives me great joy to have the opportunity to not only meet so many amazing young women but to also volunteer beside such strong women from different backgrounds. While I believe I am given an opportunity to help I believe I will also learn so much from each person I meet.
My hobbies and interest:
My hobbies tend to center around my nieces and nephew. I enjoy a nice spa day with my nieces or sometimes just a new adventure around town. My nephew tends to request a bowling day when we spend time together. While Disney is not a hobby, we all enjoy a good Disney trip whenever we get the chance.  When not spending time with family I enjoy visiting friends and taking vacations.
My Passion and Gifts:
I feel my greatest gift is kindness, compassion and respect that I have for others. I am often been told I have a servant’s heart.  I enjoy helping people whenever I can, regardless of who they are, where they come from, or what they need. I believe that spreading kindness each day has a ripple effect.
