Dr. Lee completed her undergraduate degree at Washington University in St. Louis. She then came to Rochester to complete medical school at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, where she also completed her pediatric and child neurology residency training. She then completed a fellowship in Neurogenetics.

She is part of the Neurogenetics Consultation Team and Pediatric Neuromuscular Clinic.

In her clinical practice, she sees children with a wide range of neurologic conditions and is particularly interested in disorders with a genetic basis. She also sees children with neuromuscular disorders like spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), Duchenne and Becker Muscular Dystophy (DMD / BMD) and works in the neuromuscular division to provide treatment and care for these children. She directs the follow-up clinic for infants diagnosed with Pompe disease via newborn screening.

Her clinical research interests are in genetic therapies for genetic neurologic disorders. She is lead investigator for several rare disease registries (Pompe, Fabry, SMA) and currently involved in therapeutic clinical trials for DMD and congenital myotonic dystrophy.
