Director of Community Partnerships
Alex brings to Lookout nearly a decade’s worth of experience in various external relations and community-centered roles, starting with her work in a State Assembly district office in her hometown.
After coming to Santa Cruz in 2015, she immediately integrated herself into the community. She was an appointed Santa Cruz County Parks and Recreation Commissioner, a Steering Committee Member of the United Way’s Emerging Leaders Circle and worked as a Policy Analyst for the Downtown Association of Santa Cruz. She also is a graduate of Leadership Santa Cruz County, Class 32.
In her most recent job, a corporate relations role at UC Santa Cruz, she established, developed and cultivated relationships and partnerships with Fortune-list companies, mid-sized, small and start-up businesses, and local alumni-owned businesses.
“What inspires me about Lookout Local is that the mission is community-focused,” Alex says. “Personally, Lookout is an exciting opportunity for me to partner with leaders in non-profit, community groups and local businesses to engage with our readers through a modern platform that provides a new standard of interaction that I believe is the future of local news.”
