Lea joined the staff at Pinnacle in January 2002 as Administrative Assistant and transitioned to Business Administrator in 2007.
Lea grew up in Minnesota and moved to Phoenix after graduating high school. She has a daughter, Gwen and two grandchildren, Annabelle and Henry, who are the joy of her life. They also live in Phoenix, so there are many opportunities for Lea and her husband, Mark to spend time with them. Lea's son, Dean, passed away in 2010.
Lea enjoys cooking a variety of cuisines and with unusual ingredients, playing the guitar, writing, especially poetry and being “Gammy” (as her grandchildren call her).
