Lea grew up in Colorado, spending as much time as possible in the mountains. Inspired by her mother, the park engineer at Rocky Mountain National Park, and by the realization of the impact engineers can make on people’s lives, Lea decided civil engineering was her jam.
When she isn’t working on an engineering project for a developing community, she’s chasing one of her other passions – skiing, backpacking, or perhaps travelling someplace where llamas roam freely.
