Her primary role is to lead the development and launch of the Bay Area Abortion Rights Coalition as well as the Department’s Women’s Policy Summit. She most recently served as Alameda County Community Food Bank’s Government Relations Manager where she led the strategy with the public sector, including the Food Bank’s COVID-19 emergency response with local government as well as the organization’s annual policy agenda, civic engagement programming, and advocacy communications.

Alex was born and raised in San Jose and served as senior staff to the late Alameda County Supervisor and former Assembly Majority Leader Wilma Chan covering children’s and budgetary policy. During this time, she had the opportunity to collaborate with early care and family resource providers like 4Cs who play an integral role in shaping the health and opportunity for children and their families.
Today, the professional is now very personal. Alex is a proud “mama bear” to Ben (7) and Miles (2) and an even more passionate about advocating with the childcare community for equity. Now an Oaklander for over a decade, she is a proud and grateful to join the 4Cs board to help make that passion a reality.
