Alex joined the abc27 News team in November 2011 as our York Bureau reporter.
A writer at heart, she is fascinated daily by the people she meets, and is drawn to all things hyper-local. Needless to say, she absolutely loves her job and is beyond excited to continue life's adventure in south-central Pennsylvania.
As a south Jersey native, Alex grew up surfing in Ocean City and cheering on the Phillies with her wonderful family.
She earned her degree in both political science and journalism from Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut.
While in school she took to the sea to satisfy her inner Hemingway by embarking on her on a four-month journey around the world by ship. That experience solidified her drive to always tell important stories, and proved to her that the word "important" never has to mean "high-profile".
Alex currently lives in York County with her two cats, "Walden" (the pond) and "Guthrie" (Woodie, not Arlo), both adopted from the shelter.
On her off days, you might find Alex picking up some fresh produce downtown, or wandering through a local book shop. If you see her out, say hello and never be afraid to share a story idea!
