Lee was born and raised in Hope Township, Michigan. She used to compete in powerlifting. She graduated from Meridian High School in 2010 and attended Delta College in Bay City, Michigan, to study diagnostic medical sonography.

Lee participated in the 2015 WWE Tough Enough season and took first place. She was consequently given the opportunity to accept the promotion and a one-year contract. Tough Enough, a talent search competition with an elimination-style format, featured Sara Lee as the season 2015 winner. She participated in NXT on a few occasions, but her in-ring prowess failed to impress high-ranking officials, and she was dismissed from her contract in 2017.

On December 30, 2017, she married former WWE wrestler Cory James Weston, also known as Westin Blake. In 2017, they welcomed their first child, a daughter named Piper Weston, and two sons in 2019 and 2021 respectively.

As per Money Market news, the native of Hope had an estimated net worth between $1-$2 million. 

Although the family has not disclosed the exact cause of death, judging by the pro wrestler’s post, she had just begun to recover from a particularly terrible sinus infection when she made the decision to start working out properly once more.
