Born in China, raised in Beijing and Dallas, Texas, Dr. Bridgitte Shen Lee founded iTravelCE to share an inside view of the culture and countryside of traditional and contemporary China while providing continuing education for medical professionals. Both of her parents graduated from China's most prestigious medical school, Peking Union Medical College. Her upbringing in medical academia helped to shape her own career in helping others with their sight. Now raising her two young daughters to be bilingual and bi-cultural, Dr. Shen Lee hopes to create an opportunity to share the Chinese and American cultures that she cherishes. Through iTravelCE, she has custom designed an unforgettable travel experience combined with an expert and engaging professional learning experience.

iTravelCE serves as a bridge between the Chinese and the American/European optical industries. It was founded to bring American optometrists to China for their continuing medical education and to introduce Chinese optometrists to the latest in frames, ophthalmic lenses, contact lens, and ophthalmic pharmaceutical products from the US and Europe.

Dr. Shen Lee earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Texas in Austin and her Doctor of Optometry magna cum laude degree from the University of Houston College of Optometry. In 1999, with a fellow eye doctor, she founded a private optometry practice, Vision Optique, in Houston. She is fluent in Mandarin Chinese. An avid traveler, her footsteps have traversed Europe, Asia, and North America. Dr. Shen Lee travels to China and Asia frequently to teach and consult for optical industry companies.
