Born and raised in Oklahoma City, Lee was a competitive swimmer on the national level and her high school’s mascot. She left home to attend college in Charlottesville at The University of Virginia. Though she spent her 20s living in San Francisco and Boston, Lee is extremely close with her family and knew she wanted to raise her children in her hometown. She made the move back to Oklahoma City after her first son was born in 2004 and gave birth to twin boys two years later. Lee loves raising her boys and makes it a point to take them on as many adventures as possible. She has built a rewarding career in medical device sales and, being divorced, has attempted to navigate the world of online dating. The Welch household is her home away from home.
