Throughout her career, Lee Purdy has held roles that take advantage of proficiency in risk management, compliance and safety. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from Kearney State College and applied her knowledge within the manufacturing sector. Later, working for the University of Nebraska-Kearney, Lee gained experience in healthcare safety and honed her property inspection skills. While there, she also taught OSHA Construction Safety as an adjunct professor.
Lee believes in giving back to the community and is the chair of the Civil Service Commission and on the SAFE Center board of directors. She is a past board member for Crane River Theater and United Way, as well as Kearney Area Community Foundation volunteer and Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce Envoy. It was BD Construction’s dedication to volunteerism and giving back that drew Lee to seek a position with the firm.
When she’s not volunteering at the Classic Car Museum, Lee can be found enjoying the company of her two grown children and two grandchildren, reading, participating in services at First United Methodist Church or tending her flower beds.
