Bio

Alexis' story is one of consistency and commitment - most recently, she served as the Director of Policy and Programs at the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE). To Alexis, educational opportunity means we ensure every child can achieve the American Dream through high-quality, accessible VPK-12 education, affordable postsecondary programs, and workforce training that align with the jobs of the future. Serving the FLDOE for two sessions, Alexis worked in lockstep with the Legislature to enhance Florida's VPK-20 Education System - successfully advocating for historic increases in public education, teacher salary funding, and developing education laws signed by the Governor into a multi-tiered implementation plan. Prior to her role in Legislative Affairs at FLDOE, Alexis was Representative Vance Aloupis' campaign manager in the 2018 and 2020 election cycles and served as his Legislative Aide from 2018 - 2020. Aloupis narrowly won the election to HD 115 in 2018 and was re-elected by 15 points in 2020. Upon graduating from Florida International University, Alexis partnered with national non-profit organizations to train Florida student leaders on candidate engagement strategies, in advance of the 2016 campaign cycle, to center candidate focus on issues that mattered to students - postsecondary affordability, student loans, and cost of living. Alexis then moved to Washington D.C. to broaden the scope of this work, developing national student leadership training programs to educate and prepare over 500 college campus presidents to advocate for their student body and local community on federal, state, and institutional issues. Alexis Calatayud is a graduate of Florida International University. She served two terms as student body president and a university trustee implementing institutional, local, state, and federal advocacy strategies to advance college affordability efforts while interning for Senator Marco Rubio.
