Born a beach baby, Leeann's love affair with the sand and the sea is innate. As a child, the Jersey shore was her second home, where she first learned her sun-kissing and sand castle building skills alongside her parents and big sister. Leeann’s obsession with the shore continues as an adult, with her taking up surfing and becoming a professional sunbather.
As a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, Leeann immersed herself in the world of interiors and in the business of home goods. Graduating with her B.S. in Home Products Development & Marketing, she has put her studies to good use with over 15 years of experience in the home products arena, which in part led to her invention of the Sol Mat.
Leeann currently calls New York City home and has added the role of “marathoner” to her resume. She believes running the New York City marathon and inventing the Sol Mat are just the first of many of her life-long dreams realized.
