Director of Development & Communications

With Breakthrough since 2013


Alex is passionate about community building and ensuring that all Chicagoans have access to the resources and skills needed to live a healthy and thriving life. She is skilled in non-profit communications, fundraising, and management and uses those skills to extend dignity to all people. She loves working at Breakthrough and getting to experience the daily joy of people finding hope and inspiration through community.

She has a BA in Communication and Spanish from Loyola University Chicago. Alex and her husband Dan live in Humboldt Park with their two daughters, Emilia and Siena. As a relatively new mom, Alex enjoys sleeping when possible and scruffy hospitality with both friends and soon-to-be friends.
