Alex is a graduate of The Academy of Learning, where she earned a diploma in Graphic Arts design and layout. In the course of her career, Alex has spent several years working for various newspapers and printing shops.
In 2000, seeking a change, she did a 360 and went to work in the construction industry. Starting from the bottom and working her way up, she gained a great deal of experience in a variety of trades.
This hands on experience, coupled with a desire to seek new challenges, led to her joining the Swordfern team in 2006 where she is responsible for delivering and maintaining high levels of property, building and premise maintenance, as well as overseeing repairs and providing oversight on contractors.
