Lesa started buying storage units in 2006 and began selling them online. In the first episode of Storage Wars: Texas, she opened her thrift store Again and Again Resale with her employee Jerry Simpson. She is somewhat looked down upon by the other buyers she is female and does not have as much money and experience as they do. However she does have a tough personality and can certainly compete with the best of them. She does have a small problem keeping some of the things she buys for herself, something that causes bickering between her and Jerry.
