Digital Marketing Director

Lea is passionate about storytelling and people, which is perfect since the two go hand-in-hand. Because of these passions, you’ll often find her with a cup of coffee and in a good conversation, since she is always looking to be inspired by the life of someone else, or to share a story that might inspire others. Lea’s application of storytelling works itself out in many ways, such as writing and graphic design — here at CCM, she puts it to use through digital marketing and social media.


Lea comes from a background of storytelling including previously serving as the Editor of a regional lifestyle magazine, numerous social media management positions ranging from innovative restaurants to venture-backed internet startup companies, and graphic design for marketing and creative avenues. She received her BS in journalism/news editorial and psychology from The University of Texas at Tyler, where she also served as the the Editor in Chief of the Patriot Talon student newspaper.


Lea loves all things creative, which heavily influences her perspective on life. She grew up in Los Angeles, California and moved to Tyler, Texas in 2003, where she currently resides with her husband. What ultimately fuels everything she does is her love for God, and for people.
