Lea Kone, Youth Director
Lea Kone joined Downtown Presbyterian Church in 2010, shortly after moving back to the Rochester area and has spent many Sunday mornings working with our youngest members in the nursery. She recently bought a home in the Highland Park area of Rochester (nearly just behind Rev. Youngdahl).
Lea is originally from Avon, NY, and grew up attending Avon Central Presbyterian church. She holds a B.A. in Art History from Nazareth College and a M.S. in Recreation Administration from Aurora University. Professionally, Lea has spent most of her career working and running summer camps, conference centers and non-profit organizations in the northeast. Her love for summer camp and youth ministry began during her 14 summers at Camp Whitman, a place that still hold an important part of her heart. She is currently a marketing and fundraising consultant and is in the process of starting her own travel agency and travel boutique in Rochester.
