Alex was born and raised in southern Virginia, about an hour north of the Triad. She has worked as a Freelance Graphic Designer for over 10 years. She attended High Point University, where she studied Art with a concentration in Graphic Design and Marketing. Upon graduation, Alex worked as a Graphic Designer and Assistant to the President at a marketing company in Mount Airy, NC. After working in the design field for a few years, Alex had the opportunity to work for the Governor’s Administration in Richmond, Virginia as the Assistant Mansion Director and Aide to the First Lady and later as the Operations Director for the Governor’s PAC. While working for the Governor, Alex created websites, maintained social media pages, assisted with event planning and fundraising, and planned and carried out the Governor’s Mansion and First Lady’s Initiatives Projects.
Towards the end of the Governor’s tenure, Alex decided to return home and to the design field as a Graphic Designer and Marketing Manager for Civitas Media. While at Civitas, Alex was responsible for planning, branding, program development, and special projects across all print and digital media properties for Civitas, a media company with 100+ newspaper and digital properties. Some of her projects included community directories, magazines, circulation promotions, website templates, direct mail, coupon books, advertisements, sales collateral, and sales and marketing presentations.
Alex brings a sense of pride and immense work ethic to every design project, which she attributes to growing up and working on her family’s 9th generation farm in Claudville, Virginia. Her success as both an independent and professional artist is mainly due to her creativity, accountability, and ability to link marketing and design to any project she takes on.
Alex is excited to join the PIP team and return to the Triad area. Some of her responsibilities at PIP will include: designing a wide range of materials including large format printing, banners, promotional products, brochures, print and web ads, and direct mail. She will also work closely with the marketing department on branding, social media campaigns, and providing materials for our Sales Team.
Other than her passion for design, Alex has a love for volunteer work. She enjoys volunteering with 4-H programs, Victory Junction Gang Camp, and serves on the Alumni Board at High Point University. She also enjoys being outdoors, designing jewelry, spending time with friends and family, and spoiling her three dogs: Tater Tot, Graycie Ann, and Rupp.
