SECRETARY

Alexa2

Alexa Iles (Skarpelos) 323.469.4977 alexa@mediaart.com

Born and raised in the Northwest, Alexa moved to San Francisco in 1991 and eventually found her way to the sunny hills of the Hollywood Dell in 2000 when she and her husband, expecting their daughter Athena, moved to La Punta Drive. After 7 years and countless Dell functions, Alexa thought she knew a lot of her neighbors. But after she and her family adopted an adorable rescue dog in late 2007, Alexa got to know a whole world of “dog people” in the Dell during her twice-daily walks through the neighborhood. In 2011, Alexa co-chaired a successful grassroots community effort to save a beloved walking trail in the heart of the Hollywood Dell. Today she continues to volunteer in the community as the HDCA secretary and special events chair.
