Alex is a second year MI student specializing in Library and Information Science. As the VP Communications, she is excited to connect iSchool students with MISC events and efforts, as well as to contribute and collaborate with all of the MISC council members.
Prior to joining the iSchool, Alex spent a couple years working in the software industry after receiving degrees in Math and Business at the University of Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University respectively. Now, she also works as a TALint student within UTL’s Information Technology Services department. Lest this make her seem too much of an oddball, she is also proud of her hobbies of reading, knitting, and cardigan-wearing. She’s most often found with a coffee or tea in hand (and in a reusable mug), though she also drinks way too much bubble tea and never enough water.
