Innovation Project Associate
Alex was raised in Rhode Island. After getting a public relations and journalism degree from Utica College of Syracuse University in upstate New York, she remained in New York for several years. During this time, she continued to build a very varied set of skills as a copy editor and page designer for a newspaper, as a role player/role player coordinating assistant with the New York State Preparedness Training Center, and as a volunteer with her alma mater’s theatre department. Bringing her skillset (and cat) back to Rhode Island in order to serve the people of Providence is a privilege Alex does not take lightly.
