Alexandra is currently a self-employed as a Consultant after serving as the Director of Culture and Human Resources at Brand Knew, a creative consultancy based in Century City that works with several consumer brands, television networks, NPOs, lifestyle brands and various startups. Since adolescence, she has been volunteering at soup kitchens, visiting with institutions that focus on the elderly, and taking every opportunity to travel the world. She graduated from UCLA with a BA in Art History in 2005, but after participating as a volunteer at a special ed program, she went on to teach special education and special needs professionally. In 2015, her career took a turn towards Human Resources, where she delved into the importance of the cultural paradigm within the corporate workplace. She believes that learning about and understanding the motives and behaviors of management and employee are vital to both corporate and individual wellness and success. She is interested to know what inspires, energizes, and drives each individual, and how those factors can nourish the collective as a whole. Over the years as an educator, she has grasped the valuable lesson of learning from every person and experience. Alexandra joined Brand Knew because she deeply resonated with the founders’ sentiments that each and every employee is as integral as their creativity.
