At 13 years old, Lee was introduced to camping for the first time through Camp Menogyn. In those formative teenage years, she spent her summers on various wilderness trips, including the Boundary Waters, which inspired her deep love and passion for the environment and outdoors. This passion is also inherently tied with her commitment to social and racial justice to uplift communities. In addition, she teaches BIPOC folks how to canoe and kayak through various partnerships between BIPOC Outdoors Twin Cities, Saint Paul Public Parks and Mississippi Park Connection. Despite not knowing how to swim, Lee is an avid paddler and has paddled thousands of miles including the entire Mississippi River and Illinois River, Yukon River, Quetico Provincial Park, and the Kazan and Kunwak rivers in the Canadian tundra.
She was born in Fresno, CA, but considers Minnesota her home where you can often find her paddling the Mississippi River in Twin Cities and coaching badminton at her alma mater, Central High School. Lee currently serves on local nonprofit boards which includes Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness, Camp Menogyn, Ann Bancroft Foundation and Youth Leadership Initiative.
