In my everyday life, I am just Alexandra — a former space communications specialist with NASA and later, the U.S. Space Force. I am now an independent consultant to major space organizations around the world. I write and develop brand strategies, educational presentations and speeches, and social media content.
During quarantine, I began Astro Alexandra as a fun diversion. Within a year, I had over a million followers. After two years, I had an LLC and a thriving community. Now, I speak on television, online, and on stage about topics like: space exploration, international space collaboration, advances in space discovery, current events, women in STEM, and the future of space travel. I also partner with ambitious brands looking to connect with curious people.
I am Boston-born, North Carolina-bred and a proud graduate of Vanderbilt University in Nashville. I have a Bachelor of Science in Human and Organizational Development specializing in Leadership and Organizational Effectiveness.
Meet my Co-Pilot
An outstanding crew is vital to any mission. That's why I choose this guy every time. Fenway has been my trusty co-pilot for 7 years now. A fierce advocate for the ethical treatment of animals in space, Fenway also brings vast expertise in chasing birds and chewing cardboard.
