Lemanski is 46 years old and was born on 18 January 1975 at St John’s Hospital in Springfield, Illinois. She attended Sacred Heart-Griffin High School in Springfield and studied music and business administration at Millikin University.
At the time of her controversial comments, Lemanski was social media director of the Democratic Party of DuPage County, Illinois. However, she resigned later that day, with the Party Facebook page confirming her exit.
Aside from being a Democratic staffer, the 46-year-old is a musician and singer – you can find her music on Spotify. She began her music career at age 11, where she was paid $40 for her first gig as replacement organist at her Catholic school’s church. Since then, she’s learnt how to play the keyboards, drums, guitar and bass.
Her first full-length album, Eclectic, was released in 2010 and she was a semi-finalist in the Song Of The Year contest in 2011. Her second album, Speechless, came out in 2012 and she has since released three singles: Lullaby in 2014, Coal Miner’s Granddaughter (2017), and Pound To The Beat (2019).
