Lee-Anne’s LinkedIn title is ‘A creative organizer – coordinating in many ways in many areas for many people.’ This is true both personally and professionally. She’s always been a fan of using her calendar and has a particular fondness for scheduling and organizing content for others (less so for herself, ask her Mom and her accountant!). Before she came to CSI she played many roles at CBC, including financial management, then production coordination for the National Radio News team and then associate producer at the Radio Syndicate, where she digitized the interview booking system for regional stations across the country.
Before then, and after finishing her Psych/ Women & Gender Studies degree at University of Guelph & U of T, her jobs ranged from R&D for a fitness nutrition company to landscaping for a small urban contracting company, to freelance admin for artists and entrepreneurs. One of her favourite jobs was when she got paid to ride her bike around a giant park in Etobicoke; dinging her bell and checking people’s permits for sports fields and picnics.
Her life’s not so different now! She still gets to ride her bike to work every day to her current role. She feels right at home because her heightened capacity to ‘deal with numbers and words in boxes’ is best revealed when integrated with her people skills. She also a self-proclaimed ‘professional noticer,’ which basically means she takes nice photos of skies, shadows, reflections, street art, and the plethora of kids she’s ‘Auntie Lee’ to at @littlebitesbig.
