Previously doubling as both the Director of Operations as well as Assistant Coach, she is now focused solely on her work with the Throws events.

She was a three-time All-American during her time as a student-athlete, earning honors in the hammer throw (2009) and indoor shot put (2007, 2008). She was also the 2009 Big 12 Champion in the hammer throw, which accounted for 10 of her 21 points that meet and earned her the Big 12 Championships High Scorer Award. Lee ended her career with three Missouri All-Time Top Ten marks, and still holds the Missouri School Record in the hammer throw (63.77m / 209-2.5). Lee also competed post-collegiately, qualifying for the 2008 U.S. Olympic Trials in the shot put, the 2009 USATF Championships in the shot put and hammer, and the 2010 USATF Championships in the hammer.
Since her graduation, Lee has been involved heavily in a variety of different jobs within Mizzou Athletics and Track & Field. From 2009 through 2010 she worked as a volunteer assistant coach with Coach Halter, while pursuing a her post-collegiate career. After 2010, Lee moved over to the Mizzou Athletics Compliance Office as a graduate assistant, earning her Master's Degree in Health Education and Promotion with an emphasis on Sport Psychology in 2012. She also worked as an assistant coach with the throws events at Hickman High School. Lee currently resides in Columbia.
