I love my job because I am challenged daily, and everyone at LEE is passionate about the mission of the organization. It’s rare to work somewhere where you’re supported by staff at all levels, and there’s still room for flexibility and input in your work. Being able to work from home or move to another city easily is a huge plus as well!
