Hi, I’m Alexandra!
I’m a results-oriented & data-driven digital Operations, PMO, People, Product, Marketing & Finance leader who gets things done.

I help businesses succeed through the efficient and effective use of people, process, and technology. My expertise is in general business and management consulting with focus on digital marketing, operations and process design, and finance.

I’m passionate about people and business: I love collaborating to solve concrete business problems through empathy, technology, and innovation, and I care deeply about efficient operations and effective business and people management.

I bring 20 years of experience in professional services delivery, business consulting, digital marketing, and technology product design that spans industries. I’ve worked agency- and client-side at small startups, mid-size firms, with large companies, and for the government. Since 2018, I’ve also been privileged to work with distinguished clients through my own independent consulting practice.

I specialize in consulting for healthcare/pharma, transportation, tech, & education but welcome the opportunity to work with clients in all sectors!
