While not yet ready to quit her day job as a structural engineer for full-time fundraising, Alex is excited to be contributing to a cause that allows her to explore a passion – doing better. Alex spent her first nights in Sierra Leone in 2018. It was hot and humid and there was not a cloud in the sky the entire trip, but the care and smiles from the locals as well as the excitement of the children when they learned that they were getting a chicken coop – and we had built that chicken coop! – made Alex realize that this was a passion worth pursuing.
When practicing self-care, Alex enjoys hiking with her dog Oslo, riding her bike, and destroying her kitchen to make delicious food to devour!
