Meet Lisa

Lisa Callan proudly represents the 5th Legislative District – including Snoqualmie, North Bend, Issaquah, Maple Valley, Black Diamond, Carnation, Fall City, and parts of Sammamish and unincorporated King County – in the Washington State House of Representatives. Since taking her oath of office over three years ago, she’s been an active voice for Washington families, schools, youth, and community investment.

As a vice chair of the House Capital Budget Committee, Lisa helps develop and direct investments in Washington construction and infrastructure projects, bringing opportunity and jobs to communities across the state.

Lisa also serves as a co-chair of the Children & Youth Behavioral Health Work Group, leading a group of hundreds of stakeholders focused on improving the behavioral health services and strategies for children, youth, families, and caregivers. Through this work, she’s helped pass many new policies in mental health, substance use, suicide prevention, workforce development, and perinatal-to-young-adult behavioral healthcare.

Before she was elected in 2018, Lisa served as a school board director in the Issaquah School District, worked as a Boeing engineer and project manager, and consulted in software development.
