WELCOME

I am a recent graduate from Pace University-Lubin School of Business with a Bachelor's Degree in Advertising and Integrated Marketing Communications. I am confident that my academic background, analytical skills, and various work experiences will enable me to contribute meaningfully to a variety of business functions. I am especially interested in the areas of market research and public relations. During my internships I was responsible for creating press releases, blog posts, social media analytics and working with media outlets in support of various advertising campaigns. In addition, I researched market trends, as well as assisted in the creation of a survey for various aspects of assisted living attributes. I am confident that my attention to detail, eagerness to learn, and analytical skills coupled with my ability to work effectively in both individual and group settings will ensure my professional success.

"I have known Alexandra for the past year, since she was a Peer Leader for my UNV101 class, and have been impressed by her abilities, maturity, and sense of responsibility.  As a peer leader, she developed a wonderful, supportive relationship with our first-year students. She was a true partner in dealing with the issues new students at Pace face, including class assignments, dorm relations, registration, and relationships with faculty.  She was always available as problems arose, while maintaining her own rigorous course schedule. She has the motivation to do well in her coursework and career. I am confident that Alexandra will do well in her future career and achieve the goals she sets for herself."
