Alex graduated from the University of Maryland in May 2013 with a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism and minor in Leadership Studies. During her senior year, Alex began working at Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic as a production assistant, and continued to do so after graduation. After five years in the D.C. market, Alex decided to pursue her on-air dream and began working at TV6 in September of 2017 as a Weekend Anchor, Reporter and MMJ.
Alex has a lot of hobbies away from the job. She is a HUGE sports fan – she loves her Terps, Caps, Redskins and Orioles – although she hasn’t been able to watch any of her teams up here in the U.P. If you know of any great places she can tune in, please feel free to reach out to her! She also enjoys fitness and the outdoors, so you may find her outside running, hiking, fishing and taking advantage of the beautiful U.P. scenery. She can’t wait to try all the new outdoorsy things that Marquette has to offer.
Alex’s family and friends are also a huge part of her life, although they’re all currently back in Maryland. She hopes her husband and puppy will be joining her soon. Her dog Tiberius Megatron is a golden doodle and even has his own Instagram, so give him a follow.
Maryland has always been Alex’s home, but she is very excited for her adventure here in the Upper Peninsula. She has never seen the kind of snow that Yoopers get, so she’s hoping for a first mild winter to get her acclimated. If you have any suggestions of things she must see or do, please feel free to contact her!
