Lee grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. She developed a love for the mountains, and the outdoors, when traveling to visit her grandparents in Northern California each summer when she was a kid. She pursued her dream to live closer to the mountains and moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado in 2004 to attend college. In 2008, she graduated from Colorado College with a BA in Psychology. Lee has lived in Crested Butte since 2011 and is truly living in the mountains now at 10,500 ft., in a cabin outside of town, where she has to snowmobile to work every morning in the winter. Lee worked at the Gunnison County Department of Health and Human Services for four years, helping our community’s seniors and people with disabilities, before accepting her job at the Adaptive Sports Center. In her free time, she loves skiing, running, mountain biking, and playing chess.

Why I choose to work with people with disabilities:

I have a deep passion for helping people improve their quality of life. It is inspiring to be able to provide opportunities to people who have a desire to live life to the fullest no matter what obstacles may be in their way. I grew up becoming inspired by my own mother, who works for a therapeutic horseback riding center for children with disabilities, and knew that I wanted to help change people’s lives in the way I see her doing on a daily basis.

Favorite thing about working at the Adaptive Sports Center?

Adaptive Sports brings my love of the outdoors together with my passion to help people achieve their life goals. It is inspiring to work at a place that has so many passionate, hardworking, driven people working together to achieve such an important mission. And it is always a bonus to see so many smiles at work!
