Alexis Blades

Development Data Manager

Born as a native to Los Angeles, Alexis appreciates the diversity this culturally rich city offers. She enjoys learning about traditions from other cultures. Her zest for experiences and passion for helping people lead her to volunteer for the Peace Corps. Alexis lived 2 years in Uganda, Africa assisting the needs of Uganda’s people in a village called Kakiri (they grow the best mangos you will ever eat).

Alexis believes everyone has a superpower. On the path to discovering her own superpower, she received a bachelor’s degree with honors, became a world-traveler, served in other non-profit organizations and found her way into non-profit development. Although Alexis is still discovering her superpower, her desire to influence social change has led her to IKAR. Her goal, as part of the IKAR team, is to help IKAR fulfill its mission and promise to the community.

Alexis works closely with the development team as the Development Data Manager.

Outside of the office her son, wellness, family and friends are her favorites. Reach her at [email protected]
