Alex holds a B.A. in Liberal Studies from Sacramento State University and an M.A. in Higher Education and Student Affairs from The Ohio State University.

Alex spent much of his early career in Student Housing and Residential Life but found an opportunity for more individual connections and a different impact on success in transitioning to Academic Advising. Serving as the Kinesiology Advisor at California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) along with his passion for fitness lead him to obtain a certification as a Personal Trainer. Alex last served as the Academic Advising Coordinator at CSUMB before trading in his ocean view for a mountain view.

When Alex is not at work you’ll find him on a hike exploring new areas with his wife, Sondra, and dog, Chance or reading at home with their cat, Atlas.
