Alden is a Northern California native but has called all corners of the country home, living in Chicago, New Jersey and San Francisco before earning Bachelors degrees in Business and French from North Carolina State University. She eventually headed back west, landing in Southern California where she began her career at Mattel Toys in project management. With impeccable attention to detail and a passion for building meaningful relationships, Alden went on to refine her account management, marketing, and PR skills at various branding and design agencies along the coast. Before joining thinkPARALLAX, she assisted in the development of Bank of America’s corporate social responsibility strategy, community engagement, and philanthropic efforts in San Diego, which ignited her passion for purpose-driven business. When she’s not strategizing with clients, Alden is spending time with her two crazy sons and husband, hanging at the beach and playing Uber driver to all their various activities.
