Alex has contracted with ATN for communication-related tasks since 2014. This time around, Alex is ATN’s Social Media and Communications Coordinator, responsible for sharing ATN’s message across the various social media platforms and traditional media. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Secondary Education and a Master of Arts in Communication from The College of Saint Rose in Albany, New York.
Alex grew-up in suburban Albany, NY in a single-parent household. His mother was a teacher, and she instilled early on in his life the importance of education. She also emphasized how one caring adult can truly help a child in need, just by being present. He witnessed this first-hand through her and others who surrounded him during his most troubling times as a teenager.
Alex is married to his wonderful husband, Nick and has two fur babies: Frankie Purnatra and Lady Sybil Grantham. If you have ideas for social media posts or stories, please email Alex at Alex@attachtrauma.org
