ALEXIA CLARKE, MPH

Program Director

Pain is universal, but the experience of trauma is individual. I am grateful to be able to help create a safe space for individuals on their journey of healing– a place to exhale, find community, and do the work.

The services we provide have taught me so much about the depths of grief and the heights of resilience. The most important lesson?  We are not alone.

Alexia earned a BA from Smith College and a master’s degree in Public Health from Drexel University. She has spent over 17 years developing and providing behavioral health programming focused on community health and prevention.

For 5 years she served as Program Coordinator at STEPS for Kids, a childhood obesity treatment program out of Inspira Health Network in Vineland, NJ. She was Community Outreach Coordinator for the Kornberg School of Dentistry in Philadelphia, PA for 3 years, connecting families to oral care and providing education on oral health. Prior to working at Temple, she also worked at the Mazzoni Center in Philadelphia, PA as a Positive Prevention Specialist and at Safeguards, Inc. in Philadelphia, PA, providing LGBT and HIV/AIDS health outreach.

Transformational leadership, empowerment and building community capacity for self-determination and self-care are at the core of her approach to work and life.
