Lee Ann began her television broadcasting career in the south, from Texas to Alabama, becoming the first person of color to anchor the news in Springfield, MO. In 1996, Lee Ann continued her career in San Diego, where she soon became a recognizable and reliable source of information. Marrying her vocation to share stories and her desire to advance the work of immigrants and artists of color, she established the San Diego Asian Film Festival and Pacific Arts Movement, serving as its first executive director for 16 years. Lee Ann is a graduate of our Learning Group and Coaching Programs and was selected in the first cohort of Clare Rose Sabbatical recipients. Lee Ann serves as our Videographer, a Program Moderator, and as a Retreat Facilitator for our social justice retreat scheduled for 2021.
