In addition, Alexandria also covers current events, travel, nutrition/health, and self-help topics. She currently works in Media Relations for a university in Houston, TX and serves as the Multimedia Manager for Brownstone Magazine.
Alexandria is a graduate of California State University, Dominguez Hills and is currently pursuing a Master’s in Communication (Public Relations Studies) at the Jack J. Valenti School of Communication at the University of Houston. She specializes in conducting interviews and telling stories using creative techniques. She also has a knack for teaching and has taught workshops for several organizations including the Urban Media Foundation and the Girl Scouts of the USA. Alexandria also serves as a consultant to those seeking help to build their brand, gain publicity or and shape public or internal messaging.
