Alex Brown developed his passion for practicing and sharing mindfulness in 2012 after participating in a guided meditation and having a transformative experience. Since then, he has sought to strengthen his love and compassion for himself and others through daily meditation, reading, and courses. He has an immense desire to help others do the same.
Prior to serving with Koru, Alex served as the Director of Neighborhood Programs and Information Technology for PlantPure Communities (PPC), a 501c3 nonprofit with the mission of building stronger, healthier, and more sustainable communities by helping people understand the benefits of a whole food, plant-based diet. While there, Alex was responsible for furthering the development and implementation of the Oasis Jumpstart Program, which brought whole food, plant-based meals, science-based nutrition education, and healthy lifestyle practices to underserved neighborhoods across the United States. Alex also established, oversaw, and directed the technology systems for PPC’s organizational and programmatic needs.
