– the researcher
When Alex isn’t busy exploring new places, listening to podcasts, or sipping on afternoon cortados (yes, plural), she’s a “Law Clerk Extraordinaire” for Rockridge Venture Law.
As a Cookeville-native, Alex has worked to protect the climbing areas and natural places that make the South such a beautiful place to live and work. She teamed up with the City Council of nearby Monterey, TN to create a new park, Meadow Creek Park, to encourage outdoor recreation and promote ecotourism. She brings her experience in community activism and knowledge of conscious capitalism and corporate social responsibility to Southtown. Her role includes coordinating social and environmental impact events and writing for Southtown and RVL.
Alex graduated summa cum laude from Tennessee Tech University in 2018 with her degree in Political Science: International Relations. She is now working on a JD of her own at Belmont College of Law in Nashville (on an open-a-Bruin-sized-checkbook for her scholarship because she’s fancy smart like that).
