Living in New York City for over a decade, more specifically in the borough of Brooklyn, Alexandra has loved the feeling of being in the center of it all. An ideal weekend might include an opera at the Met or an art exhibit at MoMA one day and catching a football game and local craft beer at a neighborhood pub on the next.
Still very much a country girl at heart, when too much time goes by without a trip upstate or back to her old New England stomping grounds for a hike in the mountains or a swim in the ocean, she finds other ways to add some nature to life in the city. Between keeping a garden on her fire escape, home cooked meals sourced from the farmers' markets, and walks in the park, she finds plenty of ways to escape the urban jungle. And she finds even more ways to embrace it, as she loves discovering new neighborhoods, reading about obscure local histories, trying both the newest restaurants and old favorites, and who doesn't love some cotton candy and a stroll along the Coney Island boardwalk during any month of the year?
An avid reader and moviegoer, her ultimate guilty pleasure is murder mysteries. She loves them equally in the form of novels and mini-series, but for reasons she cannot explain, murder is just so much better with a British accent. There aren't many Agatha Christie books she hasn't read nor BBC crime series she hasn't seen. Her least guilty pleasure is her yoga and meditation practice.
Alexandra graduated cum laude from Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH. She received Honors in the major of English literature for her thesis, “Heroic Hybridity: Joyce’s Answer to Purist Nationalism in Ulysses,” advised by Professors James Heffernan and Irene Kacandes. The thesis was awarded a cash prize from the Dickey Center for International Relations and the Chase Senior Thesis Peace Prize Competition. Coursework included creative writing workshops with Tom Sleigh and Cleopatra Mathis. She also completed a semester at Trinity College, Dublin as part of a study abroad program.
Alexandra received her M.F.A. from the New School in New York City, and graduated with a 4.0 GPA. She was advised by Robert Polito for her master’s thesis, including the creative manuscript, “Bloom & I” and critical thesis, “Twentieth Century Superlatives: ‘The Real Robert Lowell.’” She was invited to participate in directed study with David Lehman for work related to her master’s thesis.
