Role on Board – Director

Alex is an accomplished fundraising and community relations professional with a background in development, membership, and community engagement across a range of organizations, from prominent national groups to grassroots startups. As the Chair of the United Women of East African Support Team (UWEAST) Finance Committee, she works with fellow board members and organization leaders to help guide UWEAST’s financial strategies and ensure long-term sustainability.

Currently serving as the Senior Gifts Officer with the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Foundation, Alex spearheads institutional fundraising efforts and manages a portfolio of individual major donors, driving support for ULI’s global initiatives in areas of affordable housing, climate resilience, and decarbonization. Her interest in civic engagement led her to earn a Master’s in Public Administration from San Diego State University in 2017, where she concentrated on public and social welfare policy.

Alex lives in La Mesa with her partner and their three cats. She enjoys traveling with friends, cooking (and eating) vegan food, and spending time in the water.
