Renaissance Woman is the best way to describe Lea McIntosh. Lea has the right combination of talents and experiences that make her accomplished in a variety of disciplines: culinary arts, business marketing and branding, graphic and web design, event design, and music performance. She is a credentialed chef, graduated from the California Culinary Academy of San Francisco; founder and CEO of Nesting Newbies®, a new media lifestyle brand; former owner of an upscale catering and event production company whose clients included Neiman Marcus, Louis Vuitton, Bugatti, Baccarat, and Kimpton Hotels; former private executive chef; and recipe tester in Sunset Magazine’s kitchens—and she is a gifted opera singer and bluegrass musician.  These days, Lea’s expertise extends beyond the kitchen… she is responsible for the development and growth of the Nesting Newbies and other lifestyle brands.
