83: Mandy Lee

Mandy Isaacs-Lee is the founder and principal of Omni Government Relations, which we were delighted to see sports a quote from Yoda on its homepage: “Do or do not. There is no try.” Isaac-Lee’s been a rising star in Sacramento for a while. She was recognized on the National Association of Asian Pacifics in Politics and Public Affairs’ “40 Under 40” list in 2016, when she was with Platinum Advisors. Now she’s working for herself and some big-time clients have signed with her: Tesla, CVS and Kaiser. Widely respected in the Capitol community for her work as a lobbyist, Isaacs-Lee is also an LGBTQ activist and serves on the executive committee of the board of Equality California. Isaacs-Lee got her start as a legislative staffer, serving as a consultant to then-state Sen. Alex Padilla and as legislative director for Assemblyman Roger Hernandez. She also served as vice president of government affairs for the California Retailers Association, giving her a wide portfolio worthy of a Jedi knight.
