Originally from Guatemala City, Alessandra has lived and worked all over the world. For as long as she can remember, she's been passionate about the world of communications.

After a year of livin' la vida NOLA, Alessandra co-founded, a lifestyle blog for the twenty-something woman. After receiving local attention, she and her blog quickly gained national media coverage and have been featured in Paste Magazine, BuzzFeed, and will soon be featured in FOX's latest TV show.

Alessandra is an active member of the New Orleans tech scene; she has been nominated for the Ada Lovelace Awards in 2017, she spoke on NOEW’s main stage in 2017, and is part of the 2017 Silicon Bayou 100 list, the seventh annual list of the 100 most influential and active people in tech and entrepreneurship in Louisiana.

Outside the office, she is planning her next travel adventure and providing marketing and social media help to local nonprofit, One Book One New Orleans, where she sits on the board of directors.
