Vickie Mangin, Ann R. Mackey, Leah Kavanagh-Lim join nonprofit

What do a biomedical engineer, a chief financial officer, and a small business owner have in common? All three women were recently welcomed to serve three-year terms on Memorial Park Association’s board of directors.

Leah Kavanagh-Lim

Leah Kavanagh-Lim, an Avondale resident, is a 20-year veteran with Medtronic, currently working as a senior engineering program manager in new product development, focusing on operations. “My family and I love Memorial Park, and I’m honored to help keep MPA’s mission alive and well for future generations,” said Kavanagh-Lim, who will serve on the landscape and grounds committee.

Ann Mackey

Also an Avondale resident, Ann R. Mackey has a 35-year career in the financial industry, including serving as chief financial officer for Step Up For Students Inc. and as finance director of an NYSE-listed company. She currently serves as president of the Jacksonville Women’s Network and recently completed a three-year term as treasurer for Uptown Civitan. Mackey will step into the treasurer’s role for Memorial Park Association in January 2021 and serve on the finance committee. “Memorial Park is one of the most actively used parks in the city, it’s our neighborhood’s heartbeat. It’s an honor to serve on the board,” she said.

Vickie Mangin

Vickie Mangin, a resident of Riverside’s St. Johns Quarter, owns and operates Avignon Service LLC, a personal consulting business that focuses on customer service leadership training, project management and community advocacy. “I have been a Riverside resident for the past five years, and Jacksonville resident for the last 20. I visit the park regularly and I am thrilled to become part of the continued effort to make Memorial Park an amazing place for all to enjoy,” said Mangin, who will serve on MPA’s development committee.

“We welcome these three extremely talented women to the board and look forward to serving with them on behalf of Memorial Park,” said Tim Burleigh, MPA president.
