In 2007 Lee founded the Ode2Joy Laughter Club in Fort Wayne, Indiana.  Laughter Yoga is a combination of yogic breathing with gentle laughter exercises; it relieves pain and stress.  Lee has used his work to help those suffering from Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Cancer, as well as providing benefit to the families of those suffering from these and other debilitating diseases.  Businesses such as Covington Commons Assisted Living, Allen County City Employees, IPFW and Fort Wayne Community Schools have all benefited from Lee's classes.

Lee has also produced several public service programs airing on Public Access television; he has appeared on Fox 55 News, News Channel 15; and has been featured in the News Sentinel, the Journal Gazette, and the Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce publications, all highlighting the positive impact of Laughter Yoga.  He has been the keynote speaker for corporations and other organizations on the positive impact of Laughter Yoga in the workplace and has trained their staff to become Laughter Yoga leaders.  Lee has worked with the Kachmann MindBody Institute, lecturing on alternative treatments for weight loss through massage therapy and Laughter Yoga.  This group joins the many corporations, churches and social organizations who have benefited from Lee as a consultant for holistic health, stress management, team building and communications skills.

Lee's positive attitude and spontaneous sense of humor endears him to his clients.  He works with people of all ages and from all walks of life. Lee seeks to enrich the lives of his clients by offering them self-treatment techniques for everyday use.  This accelerates the healing process and lessens chronic pain.  Clients find this particularly helpful when they aren't able to alter their daily circumstances (e.g. overuse of computers, prolonged desk work, or other ongoing life stresses).
