Debi Alexander, Wife of former U.S. Rep. Bill Alexander, Included in Marquis Who’s Who for Work to Help Adults with Disabilities

We would like to inform our partners across the 8-state Greater Delta that Debi Alexander, wife of the Hon. Bill Alexander who served as US Representative for the First District of AR, has been included in the prestigious Marquis Who’s Who for her service in helping adults with disabilities.

Most of our partners will vividly remember Debi Alexander as a dynamic, thoughtful leader who was active across the First District in helping Congressman Alexander in his work promoting community and economic progress in the Greater Delta. Bill Alexander served the First District for 24 years and Debi was by his side with her vivacious leadership across our region.

We believe in recognizing partners in our network when they have received acclaim, and here is the statement from Who’s Who honoring Debi:

RESTON, VA, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ – Debi D. Alexander has been included in Marquis Who’s Who. As in all Marquis Who’s Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Ms. Alexander is noted for her leadership expertise as the executive director at Specially Adapted Resource Clubs (SPARC), a respected organization based in Reston, Virginia, that provides exceptional community-based day programs for adults with disabilities. With five locations throughout Northern Virginia, SPARC strives to maintain a safe, caring, and inclusive environment where these young adults with severe disabilities can thrive. SPARC also maintains a public-private partnership with Fairfax County, Virginia, offering an alternative to the traditional Medicaid model.

Passionate about advocating for those who often go unseen, Ms. Alexander is eager to continue helping expand SPARC into Loudoun County, Prince William County, and along the Route One corridor. She is confident she can secure the necessary funding to see it through.

Before joining SPARC in 2020, Ms. Alexander was the director of development and communications at PHILLIPS Programs for Children and Families from 2015 to 2020, a private, nonprofit organization founded over 50 years ago that serves over 500 children and their families annually throughout the Washington metropolitan area.

She also worked as an executive director for the Rainbow Therapeutic Riding Center between 2006 and 2015. During an earlier stage of her career, Ms. Alexander worked in public relations and marketing with the Fairfax County Office of Partnerships and as the director of presidential letters and messages at The White House.

In addition to her full-time career endeavors, Ms. Alexander has lent her expertise to the board of directors for Northern Virginia Community College and joined the NOVA Foundation as a member of the board of directors and communications chair. Civically invested, Ms. Alexander presently serves in various roles with the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce, the American Association of University Women, and, among other organizations, Serve Our Willing Warriors.

Ms. Alexander graduated from George Mason University in 1994 with a Doctor of Jurisprudence. She also completed leadership training at the Leadership Fairfax Institute in 2017.

Highlighting her achievements, Ms. Alexander was one of six to be recognized by Northern Virginia Magazine as a Northern Virginian of the Year in 2013.
