PurposeRedeemed was founded by Christopher K. Lee, a business strategist in California. In his day job, Chris is a senior manager at a large health system. Prior to this, he worked in small businesses, tech startups, and nonprofits.
Through his own experience, Chris saw how warped our cultural images of work are: Some people view it as just a paycheck; others, as their source of significance. Neither extreme is ideal. Chris believes that work should be meaningful, impactful, even joyful. That’s why he started PurposeRedeemed to inspire healthier perspectives on work and identity.
Chris has had various involvements in higher education. He teaches master’s and doctoral students at the University of San Diego, where he developed the curriculum for a healthcare marketing course. He has served on advisory boards, scholarship committees, and business competition judging panels at multiple colleges. Chris has mentored dozens of students.
He holds a B.A. in Psychology from UC Irvine and a Master of Public Health from San Diego State University. Chris has been quoted in outlets such as Harvard Business Review, HuffPost, and U.S. News & World Report.
