Carol Lee grew up in Hawaii where she enjoyed a multi-cultured and laid back island lifestyle but after graduating from the University of Hawaii she decided to head for big city life in Los Angeles. She studied architecture at UCLA then landed a job as creative services director for the Walt Disney Studios. That lead to other jobs in entertainment marketing, business development and sales working for studios Sony Pictures, Warner Bros. and ITV Global Entertainment where she sold digital programming to Amazon, Netflix and Hulu.
Carol brings all this experience to her work as a business navigator for APANO. She enjoys meeting and working with creative entrepreneurs and small business owners who are doing interesting things here in Portland from building beautiful retail shops to creating food to designing clothing and jewelry.
