Jeannie Lee oversees the 3,000 square feet state-of-the-art meeting/seminar space, general office spaces and engineers radical hospitality. She was the project manager for the first MountainTop convening in June 2013.
Prior to working at Auburn, Lee served as the program director of ecumenical development at Church Women United (CWU), where she oversaw the development of resources for local, state and regional groups to strengthen women’s involvement in their communities. As the UN NGO representative for CWU, she participated in and supported numerous women and faith related projects and attended the UN World Conference on Women with over 35,000 participants. She also worked at the General Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church as the bilingual administrative assistant for Asian American Ministries.
Lee served as the parent coordinator at Central Park East II Elementary School, a progressive New York City public school where she developed and implemented programs to strengthen the school-home connections for families, students, teachers, and staff.
She received a B.A. in economics from Barnard College and a Master of Divinity from Yale Divinity School. She is blessed with two sons who keep her busy as a team and class mom. Her other passion is to participate in marches for social justice – she literally walked 18 miles one day in the name of justice and was radically transformed by that experience.
