Lee has been in the localization industry since 1999. The things she likes best about the industry include the international colleagues and the challenge of the constantly changing approach to localize with higher quality, shorter turnaround time (TAT), and lower cost. In her spare time she runs in the foothills of Idaho, travels, reads to learn about the world, and plays the piano.
