Alyssa Samantha Christman Lee (she/her) is a Budget Analyst at the California Department of Finance (Finance), working for the Newsom Administration. She is a big advocate for API folks being in decision-making spaces. In April 2022, Alyssa completed the API Caucus Institute’s Legislative Staff Academy, a leadership program aimed at fostering professional development of API staff in the Legislature and Administration, and was asked to deliver the graduation speech on behalf of the Institute’s 5th Cohort. Alyssa is also a Capital Fellows alumna, completing the Senate Fellowship in 2021 in the office of Senator Dave Min. Prior to the fellowship, Alyssa double-majored in Communication Studies and Political Science at Sacramento State and worked for Assemblymember Kevin McCarty.
