Dr Lea has worked with Dr Mark in one way or another since the late 1990s.
After gaining her science degree in Environmental Biology, Dr Lea first worked for a London zoo, both as an animal ‘keeper’, and on their educational projects for the general public and schools, driving a rather large ‘zoo bus’ hither and thither! She even appeared on the BBC’s Blue Peter children’s TV programme for the zoo, and so has her very own coveted Blue Peter Badge!
Dr Lea started working with Dr Mark in London, then became a Director helping to run a London and SE-based educational company, as well as visiting schools herself delivering science and maths shows.
After starting her own educational business in the south-west of England – The Cool House of Learning - Dr Lea teamed up with Dr Mark again in 2012 to help with the increasing demand for Dr Mark’s Science and Maths shows, especially in and around southern UK.
