Alex is a trained wildlife biologist who fell in love with communicating science in college. While on a tropical ecology-based study abroad trip to Nicaragua, new camera in hand, she discovered the power of visual storytelling in sharing science with larger, more diverse audiences.
While earning her M.S. in Environmental Education, Alex honed her photography skills assisting a National Geographic Explorer who's work promotes conservation of wildlife, land and native cultural in Florida. Alex currently works as an adjunct professor of environmental biology at Radford University and as an assistant researcher and science communicator at the Center for Animal Human Relationships (CENTAUR) at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine.
Alex herself is a 6th generation Floridian. She currently lives in Blacksburg, Virginia.
