Lee Ann moved to Portland in 2008 following an eight-year stint in Paris, France, where she spent a lot of time on cafe terraces. Though she thought no city could compete with Paris, Portland immediately stole her heart. As a great place to raise kids, she loves getting out and exploring the city and region with her husband and four young children. Lee Ann earned degrees in Communications and Linguistics at the American University of Paris and L'Universite de Paris - La Sorbonne, respectively. Her professional experience spans over a decade of online and offline media marketing, including community management, content strategy, advertising and event planning. She recently opened her own homesteading shop and studio, Frigg's Mercantile, in Northeast Portland. As a small business owner and mother, she strives to get some occasional "me" time in, which she likes to spend geocaching, soap-making, and following international soccer.
