I’m Alex, a tech start-up career junkie who is passionate about ambitious women and their careers. I’m big on career mentorship, professional development, and all topics related to business so I began writing capture how they shape the careers of young women. Through exploring these elements, Professional Woman Blog exists to add value to and encourage thoughtful reflection in the lives and careers of young emerging businesswomen.

By day, I work as a business development specialist in a tech start-up where I focus on market opportunities, strategic partnerships, and sustainable business growth. I am an SFU Beedie MBA alumn with a former background in psychology and human motivation, and this foundation drives my interests in the direction of equal opportunity in the workplace, diversity in upper management, and claiming a seat at the table in male-dominated industries. To me, nothing is more captivating than a saucy, brash, bold, assured, brave, cheeky, dauntless, gritty, and gutsy career-driven woman.

My home base is Vancouver, BC, Canada.
