Alex is the Policy Associate at ANJEC since 2019. She works on the Delaware River Watershed Initiative in the New Jersey Highlands Cluster as well as on statewide policy issues including plastic reduction, stormwater, and clean energy. Before coming to ANJEC, Alex was the Policy Assistant at New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, where she worked on statewide legislation such as the Flood Defense Act, the Preserve New Jersey Act, and the Clean Energy Act. Most recently, she worked to draft language and strengthen provisions in the statewide Plastic Reduction Act. She is active in local and state level politics and serves on Morris Township Environmental Commission, as well as on the Whippany River Watershed Action Committee.

Like many other millennials, Alex's life was ruined by both The West Wing and Parks & Rec, and she has forever believed that if you work hard and do good things, you can make a difference.

Alex studied Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources at Rutgers University, with a minor in Environmental Geomatics. Her love of the natural world grew from spending time in her wooded backyard as a child, then realizing you could make a career out of caring about nature! She is a lover of birds, science fiction and fantasy books, video games, pop punk concerts, and walking alongside a babbling brook in the dappled sunshine on a cool, breezy day.
