Alexis Taylor, MPA, MSL

Director of Transformation

Alexis Taylor comes to Transform Health with extensive experience in implementation and systems change projects in the health systems space. She is a third-generation advocate for structural equity with a ten-year track record of providing strategic oversight and consultancy to equity-driven programs. Alexis’ personal story demonstrates the fierceness she brings to the work to support our Los Angeles region. Diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer at just 9 weeks pregnant, she faced racially influenced systemic failures that endangered her life and that of her unborn daughter. As the Los Angeles Director of Transformation at Transform Health, Alexis leverages this lived experience to prioritize advancing equity by equipping organizations, both large and small, with tools and models to improve long-term outcomes for historically marginalized communities. 

Throughout her career, Alexis has successfully empowered clients and stakeholders to implement strategies aimed at improving social determinants of health. Her accomplishments span a wide range, including co-authoring an equity toolkit for the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS), leading statewide technical assistance for 1115 Medicaid Waiver implementation, directing a multi-county quality improvement campaign for the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS), and offering consulting services to entities in California and beyond to advance health equity practices.

Alexis’ past experience includes leading training for an international disaster response team, fulfilling Department of Homeland Security (DHS FEMA) rapid response contracts for a fin-tech firm, executing statewide electorate expansion efforts for a sitting United States Senator, managing equitable contracts administration for CBOs at the municipal level for the City of Pasadena, and more. She holds a graduate degree in public administration and was honored to be a select scholarship recipient at the USC Gould School of Law, earning a second master’s degree in law. Alexis is highly skilled in public speaking—from national conferences to intimate forums—and has authored a trauma journal in support of colored girls. With extensive experience in managing large equity-centered endeavors, driving stakeholder engagement, and steering complex projects across multidisciplinary teams, Alexis brings substantive expertise to the communities she serves. Regardless of the challenge presented, Alexis prioritizes driving solutions that embody progress and sustainability.

Personally, Alexis is deeply committed to and thrives on spending time with her family. She is also impassioned by mentoring, writing, storytelling, and teaching.
