After graduating from Siena in 2012, Alex joined the college's admissions team. Having grown up in a Siena family, the desire to share the college's value was intrinsic. "Siena is so much more than a college, it's a community - a family. In four years, our students develop lasting relationships that support, guide, and drive them for a lifetime. It's been an incredible opportunity to help prospective families as an admissions counselor, and now I'm looking forward to assisting with their financial aid needs."
