Lee knows the industry inside out, from corporate gigs for Fortune 500 retailers, to getting her hands dirty managing a biodynamic vineyard in Tuscany, cooking hot sauce in 1,000 gallon kettles for her food start-up in the US or developing chatbot based behavioral change healthy eating programs. Co-host of food podcast Völlerei & Leberschmerz, Lee often speaks about the future of food as keynote speaker, panelists or moderator.
