Because of her professional journalism and writing background, Lee Ann enjoys translating complex topics into terms ordinary citizens can understand. Working with a planning team analyzing nature tourism opportunities in and around Laurel, Delaware, she shot and produced this video to explain their work.

On her own initiative, she shot and produced this video explaining Delaware’s Weatherization Assistance Program – telling the story from the perspective of homeowners, small business contractors, nonprofit organizations, and the state program managers. It’s not the sexiest video, but it explains an important program that helps reduce energy costs for citizens who need assistance.

Her background as a planner helped produce a tight explanation of efforts to make Wilmington’s Lincoln and Union Streets business district more of a destination than a pass-through by looking at opportunities to improve its “walkability.”
