About Alex

I am returning to my hometown of South Bend and am proud that it is to work at Saint Mary's. Higher education and the student experience are passions of mine that I am excited to share with future generations of Saint Mary's women. My connection to Saint Mary's has spanned the past few years, as my wife is an alumna. We were engaged in the shadows of Le Mans Hall on the bridge over Lake Marian, shortly after her graduation. I'm looking forward to a great year!

Alex's Admission Tip for Prospective Students

Be true to yourself. Use something that is a passion of yours to tell your story. Choose an institution that allows you to develop and grow your passions in and out of the classroom.
