About "Ms. Alexa"
I grew up in San Leandro and live there with my husband and our cat, Fox, surrounded by lots of trees and flowers.
 
I have educational degrees in Outdoor Recreation and Criminal Justice. I previously worked for 15 years in youth outdoor recreation and four of those years as a Naturalist teaching all about the natural world (and maintaining a large natural history library!) to youth of all ages in Oakland.
 
Along with running our lovely library at Grant School, I'm also a professional Search and Rescue Technician with the Sheriff's Office and I volunteer with the Alameda County 4-H Camp Academy.
 
(There's lots of dinosaurs hiding and hanging out in the library -- see if you can spot them!)
