Dr. Lee grew up in rural Southeastern Oklahoma, only two hours northeast of Krum. She was reared on a farm and at an early age knew that veterinary medicine was her calling. "According to my mom, I stated at 4 or 5 years of age that I was going to be a veterinarian and I never changed my mind,” says Dr. Lee. “I always had a passion for animals and learning everything about them.”
While growing up, she had horses and still enjoys riding in her free time. She also enjoys being outdoors, listening to live music, making jewelry and spending time with her family and friends.
Dr. Lee and her husband Shane and son Kase have made Krum their home. They specifically searched for a small, caring community in which to rear their son.
