Harm Reduction Outreach Specialist
Hiii! I’m Alexa. While I am a new member of the H.O.P.E. staff, I have been interested in Harm Reduction work for a while now. I have a desire to protect people’s rights and improve public health, specifically in my community. And, here I want to acknowledge that harm to one is harm to us all.
I want folks to know that language matters when it comes to STIs! The way we speak about STIs has a significant impact on the health of those around us. Stigma-free language is lifesaving.
Some of my favorite resources to share are:

What I do in my spare time:
I love to curate lengthy playlists, drive with the windows down, bake, nap, snack, yoga, and soccer!
If I had my own talk show, my first 3 guests would be:
Kate McKinnon, Taylor Swift (I know, I know), and my grandma Licha.
If I were another animal, I would be:
Probably some sort of toad. Like a kind of sleepy toad.
