Originally from the Outer Banks, Alex attended East Carolina University for undergrad studying history, philosophy, and classics. After ECU, she traveled to Tallahassee where she received an MA in philosophy from Florida State University. Alex’s graduate research largely focused on epistemology, folk psychology, and experimental methodology. After returning to the Outer Banks in 2020, Alex is delighted to be back in Pirate Nation. As an alumnus of East Carolina, she is passionate about continuing to extend the Pirate community in her home county of Dare and beyond. In her spare time, you can catch Alex surfing, lifting, fishing, or teaching yoga.
