About Charlotte Leckow

After several years in similar communications and marketing roles for businesses, schools, and non-profit organizations, I started my position with Move Forward Counseling, LLP. 

My passion and focus are supporting people seeking mental wellness, facing poverty, and needing help understanding how to access human services. 

I have a Bachelors Degree in Advertising and a Bachelors Degree in Russian Language (with a German Language double major) from Michigan State University.


Since May of 2022, I have been helping meet the increasing demand for mental health education and therapy in Pennsylvania.  We have online and in-person therapists whose work is the foundation of this growing PA business and a healthy community.  I build community partnerships and use MFC’s website and social media to help end mental health stigma.  Our ultimate goal is to connect therapists to jobs and clients to the services they need.

#antipoverty #communityaction #DEI

I last came from the Community Action Association of PA (CAAP) as the Communications Director. I supported and collaborated with 42 Community Action Agencies that provide programs and services at the community level, enabling Pennsylvanians to reach and maintain self-sufficiency. Through internal and external communications, I helped reduce the stigma of living in poverty through storytelling, advocating for people to seek help, and encouraging residents across PA to practice diversity, equity, and inclusion at home and in the workplace.  

#mentalhealthmatters #stopsuicide

Before that, I was the Marketing Coordinator for Mental Health America of Lancaster County, managing marketing, communications, community engagement, events, and media relations.  I was a Co-Chair of the Suicide Prevention Coalition of Lancaster County, creating and participating in community, educational, and stop-suicide events alongside organizations like AEVIDUMTeen Hope, and BHDS.  One of my projects was partnering with the Lancaster Veterans Affairs office to promote and distribute gun locks to the community, aiming to reduce unsecured firearms in our homes and death by firearms everywhere.

#endstigma #help

Managing the social media pages, community relations, website administrations, media relations, and email marketing platforms has been central to helping people find, understand, and access support and help.
