After working in education for half a decade, Alexa decided to shift gears and transition into a career in tech. Since then, she has found a home at New Relic, working her way from technical support to software engineering. She’s discovered a deep passion for empowering women and persons of color, encouraging them to bring their authentic selves to the tech industry. Alexa is an active member and leader in two employee affinity groups: Women @ NewRelic and Relics of Color. Through her involvement in these programs, she’s facilitated executive-level fireside chats, mentorship programs, and served as an advocate for underrepresented minorities in tech.
