"I enjoyed working with Representative Mark Wheatley (center) on legislation to help ensure living kidney and liver donor's have access to long term care and life insurance. This will help people like Bruce who had to wait 4.5 years to get his transplant."
27 years in the non-profit field, helping save and improve lives in both Utah and Idaho by greatly increasing organ donation registrations.
Propelled Utah and Idaho into the top five donor registries in the country, thanks to forming partnerships with many public entities, businesses, legislators, and media outlets. This was accomplished this on a non-profit budget and small staff.
Conceptualized the on-line Yes Utah Donor Registry, www.yesutah.org, which now has 82% of the population of Utah signed up to be organ and tissue donors.
Have lobbied for, and passed, numerous bills in both the Utah and Idaho Legislatures to help further the cause of organ, eye and tissue donation, demonstrating the ability to “work across the aisle." Alex has solid knowledge of the legislative process to help get Weber County more resources from the State Legislature.
