Personal
Alex lives in Washington, D.C. with her husband Brendan, their four children, a beloved yellow lab, and two guinea pigs (on whom the jury is still out). In 2016, Brendan and Alex, realizing that their family needed a broader perspective on the world, packed up the kids and spent a year backpacking around the world. It was a life-changing experience for which she will always be grateful.
