Welcome to WUN - Wake Up Narcolepsy - Alejandro Bruner-Solas - Patient Advocacy Manager

Alejandro grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has several years of experience in healthcare working for DaVita in people services. Prior to this, he worked for organizations managing volunteers and seeking philanthropic relationships. He has served on boards for the NAACP in youth outreach and the League of United Latin American Citizens. He and his wife enjoy photography and started their own business in 2013.

Alejandro had symptoms of sleep paralysis and excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) from the age of 5, but was never clearly diagnosed until the age of 37 with Narcolepsy Type 1, Circadian Rhythm Sleep Disorder and Insomnia. He is excited to join Wake Up Narcolepsy to help bring awareness and resources to the community and sleep space. As a new staff member, he can’t wait to meet others advocating for and living with these rare disorders.

Alejandro resides in the Denver, Colorado Metro Area, with his wife Melissa and their three rescue dogs. He enjoys the outdoors, hiking, gardening and spending time with his family and friends.
