My name is Tim Leep and I am the Corporate Accounting Manager at IPD. At the beginning of my career I started working at a Regional Public Accounting Firm and upon earning certification I decided to pursue a career in a Corporate Accounting Environment in order to spend more time at home with my family. In my Corporate career I have had the opportunity to hold managerial roles in the Manufacturing, Mining/Energy, Agriculture, and Marketing sectors. I have worked for large publicly traded companies as well as smaller family owned businesses. My greatest accomplishment, however, is to have been married to my beautiful wife Tracie for 27 years and I am thankful for my two pretty and talented daughters; Ashtyn who is a junior at USF and Brelyn who is a High School Sophomore at Seffner Christian Academy. I was born and raised in West Virginia and my wife was raised in Southern Georgia. We decided to move to Florida in 2010 and we have yet to regret that decision. I am very thankful and excited to have been chosen to be a part of the IPD family and I am looking forward to making IPD even more successful in the future.

Hey there, my name’s Amy! I come from Jupiter…no really, I’m from Jupiter, Florida. Growing up on the waterways of the East Coast of Florida, I discovered my passions for art, music, business, and most importantly, Jesus. After being set on fire for God in 2015, I moved to Tampa, Florida to attend the River Bible Institute to study music and worship. I was moved and motivated by an inexcusable desire to be raised up for one thing: to help people discover their purpose and unlock the life they were created to live. All I can say is, life just keeps getting more and more beautiful when you are following the plans God has for you. This journey has led me to an amazing place called iPD where I now work the best job ever with some awesome people! Thankful for the adventure called life and the King called Jesus who saved it!
I moved to Florida from upstate New York when I was a child with my family. I love Florida. I love my church and IPD families. I have 2 grown sons and 2 nearly grown grandsons.

Bio coming soonI’m very glad to be apart of the iPD family. I’ve been serving my church by running our front of house sound for 4 years and there’s nothing more I love doing in my spare time than serving not only my church but God every day. I’m so blessed to be given the opportunity to work for not only a great company but also with the great people here.

My name is Bobby, I am a Pittsburgh native with a passion in my heart for worship. I traveled down to Florida in August of 2017. I left everything behind me to come to school at the River School of Worship. I am a singer, guitarist, longboarder, and writer. Growing up, I was always making movies. Up to this day I still love to produce short films and hone my graphic design skills.
To express what I love to do, is to love Jesus. I’ve been following Jesus since I was four and I haven’t turned back since. I led worship at churches all over Pennsylvania, and led for many ministries. My goal in life is to follow the perfect will of God as closely as I can with His help. Which really means going where He asks, sometimes at a moments notice. One thing I know is I’m so blessed to be a part of this family now and there’s not another job I would want right now.

Humor is a powerful tool to express ones-self and something I try to practice daily. I’ve been playing guitar since I was 11 and have always been passionate about music. Music is what I spent most of my teen years practicing and its where I feel I have the strongest understanding and connection to. Lastly, I am passionate about people and communication. I love to listen and serve and above all my passions, I feel that there’s nothing more important that the people around us. If we don’t all live to serve, at least I can say that I do.
