Marylee didn't intend to work for the environment. In fact, her background was quite eclectic: she worked with Head Start, working in real estate, and later owned an art gallery. Her life changed when her son was born with a respiratory illness that makes it incredibly hard for him to breathe. Marylee found inspiration in her son, and wanted to help people who were less prepared to advocate for themselves and the environment around them. She currently works as the Executive Director of the Louisiana Environmental Action Network.
