NABC is pleased to introduce the newest member of the team, Project Manager Alex Perez. Alex will apply his Spanish language skills to helping NABC further mature our programs and services towards a bi-lingual format.
As a Washington State Certified Spanish Interpreter, Alex provides interpreting and translation services for non-English speaking clients of all ages. He has also served as a bilingual volunteer for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program and has successfully completed Security Officer Academy training for the Security Officer Certification program.
The oldest of four siblings, Alex was born in Guadalajara, Mexico and raised by migrant parents who worked in agriculture in Skagit County. Because of the seasonality of his parents’ work, the Perez family traveled back and forth between Mexico and the United States. After graduating from Mount Vernon High School, he attended Skagit Valley College and then transferred to Western Washington University, where he received his Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, with a Minor in Spanish.
Alex is enthusiastic and excited to recruit and work directly with clients from the Latino farming community. His direct experience in fundraising, community projects, outreach and networking with the Latino community in Skagit County will be a great asset to NABC as we expand our capacity to serve local farmers.
