A native of the Chicagoland area, Lee moved to Texas to attend Texas Christian University, where she earned her BS in Psychology. She continued there to obtain a Masters in Elementary Education, completing an internship at Starpoint Elementary School, TCU’s lab school specially designed for children with learning differences. Lee began her career in the public school setting after obtaining her Masters degree, working both in general education and special education classrooms for seven years. She went on to obtain her Educational Diagnostician certification through the University of North Texas and has served seven more years as an Educational Diagnostician.
Having completed numerous evaluations for elementary and secondary students, Lee has not only addressed specific learning disabilities, dyslexia, and intellectual disabilities, but also has served as member of her school and district’s autism evaluation team. She assists in other health impairment evaluations including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and orthopedic impairment evaluations. Lee works with teachers in creating individual educational programs (IEPs) for students by recommending supports for the classrooms and state testing (STAAR). Probably most importantly, though, she aids parents in understanding the evaluation process and its possible outcomes.
When not supporting parents and students, Lee can most often be found with her daughters, husband and extended family. She enjoys reading, working out at the local Y, gardening and serving as a Daisy Scout leader.
