Lee grew up in Oklahoma City, where the rest of his family still lives today. He met his wonderful wife Mia, who is from North Carolina, during college at the University of Richmond. After graduating, they decided to begin their careers in Oklahoma, where Lee completed physician scientist training at the University of Oklahoma. During his residency at Stanford, they fell in love with the West Coast – they are avid hikers, kayakers, and scuba divers, all of which they are very excited to explore in the PNW!
