Alex began her advisory career working with traditional clients on retirement planning. In 2012, while continuing with her general wealth management practice she joined the team at Special Needs Financial Planning, having seen first-hand the positive impact planning had for her family and brother James, who has Down Syndrome. Inspired by her family’s leadership in advocacy, she presents educational workshops to families and organizations throughout Massachusetts as well as at conferences on the state and national level. She has been featured and quoted in the media on this topic.

Aside from community service, Alex enjoys traveling, experiencing different cultures, photography, and the beaches north of Boston.
