Lee grew up in Delaware and Georgia, and spent most of her free time playing sports (specifically softball). In 2016, she was nominated for a Shuler Award for her performance as Tracy Turnblad in Hairspray! After high school, she attended Marymount Manhattan College as a Musical Theatre Major. A founding member of the theater group Sidekick Productions, Lee has been seen in Rock of Ages (Regina) at Theatre 5230 and Birds and Bats (Barbara) on YouTube, video games like The Big Con (Moira), and new plays like The Journey Home, (Dawn/Luna), Snowball (Lady, Luis and others), and Communicate (Darcy). When she's not working on something new, she's probably playing D&D with her roommates, or watching videos of otters.
