Alex enjoys taking mini vacations to visit friends, hiking with her dog, Magnolia, and attending sporting events. According to her, nothing beats a baseball game, or returning to Happy Valley to watch her alma mater play football. She also enjoys restaurants; both trying out new ones, and assisting with managing her family’s three generational bar and restaurant business.
Alex has worked as a Legal Extern in the Public Defender’s Office of Carbon County, which allowed her to gain insight into various litigation processes, such as plea bargaining, as well as observe court proceedings. While externing at the Public Defender’s Office, Alex learned the importance of being strategical with an overwhelming caseload. She also externed with a solo practitioner, where she assisted with interviewing potential clients, attending court proceedings that ranged from alcohol-related incidents to child custody battles, and preparing legal documents such as wills/trusts and LLC agreements.

As one of the leaders of the organization, Alex held conferences and informational meetings for students, professors, and the general public to attend.
