She returned home to Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, where she lived most of her life, for her husband's career. She was happy to return home for her mother and father's sake but she noticed a change in the town after returning; the mom and pop shops she dearly loved closed. Lea wanted to make a difference and she started a network through Facebook to help her town. The network, LAWRENCEBURG, KENTUCKY COMMUNITY NETWORK, caught on fast in 2010 and grew. She also wanted to raise her two boys in a small town environment. Lea worked as a substitute teacher/assistant for 14 years in Lawrenceburg area and still substitutes when needed, today. Now that her youngest is attending Western Kentucky University majoring in Sports Broadcast and the oldest son has graduated from Western Kentucky University with a Civil Engineering Degree and is now pursuing his Masters in Structural Engineering, she decided to work in the film industry. While studying acting, she appeared on camera in her first movie, "Hope Bridge". Soon after, she began her work in Production and Acting, through the films, "Faces," "Bitter Sweet," "In The Radiant City," "JL Ranch," "The Ultimate Legacy;" - a Hallmark Mysteries and Movie Channel, and many short films such as "Slipper Hero," "The Exchange Program," "Grace," "Summerland," "Crazy," "The Cats Out of the Bag," etc.. throughout the state of Kentucky, she wanted to also pursue commercials and has appeared in them as well.

She is listed with the Kentucky Film Commission under Production Resources through the "Search Directory," as a Production Assistant, Production Coordinator, and Production Secretary. Lea's goals are to become more involved in acting and production work in film hoping she can bring film to the central Kentucky area; especially her hometown of Lawrenceburg. If so, this will help maintain the mom and pop shops through tourism and keep the town alive as it was in the days when The Flim Flam Man movie starring George C. Scott and Michael Sarrazin gave life to the town. Her motto in life, comes from Winston Churchill, - Never, ever ever ever ever give up.
