Bio:
Alexandra assists faculty in public policy, law, and the
social sciences. She views her role in Foundation
Relations as equal parts educator, networker, editor, and
coach, and she uses each of those skills as she works
with faculty members on developing proposals for funders.
Prior to joining Duke, Alexandra was the Executive
Director of a non-profit organization that provided
comprehensive services to people living with HIV and
AIDS. Outside of the office you'll see Alexandra biking
around campus to get to meetings, volunteering as an
Academic Advisor for undergraduates, running laps around
Duke Forrest with her dog, or at the Duke Hospital
volunteering with the Pet Therapy Program.
