Lea is in her fourth year as Accounting Coordinator; however, the Fair is familiar to her, as she previously worked for 20 years with Robert Smith, General Counsel for the State Fair of Texas. When Lea’s coworkers were asked to describe her, thoughtful, caring, generous, humble, and meticulous, all came to mind. She is conscientious and provides a support system for her team and others in the organization. Lea’s dedication and cheerful outlook serve as a constant reminder of her love for the State Fair of Texas. On a more personal level, she is a great listener, friend and leaves a lasting impression on those she interacts with. She goes out of her way to check in on people, whether it is work-related or a personal matter. During the Fair, Lea does her best to make it out on the grounds to take in the sights, sounds, fairgoers, and of course, the food! To unwind and relax, she enjoys knitting and reading. Lea expressed her gratitude for the company culture and said she enjoys “the family feeling and sense of camaraderie.” The State Fair of Texas is fortunate to have Lea on the team and is grateful for her service.
