Alex Cole

While living in Galway, Ireland, Alex became a proficient Irish Set dancer (a type of traditional folk dancing) at her favorite pub.

Alex is from the South Puget Sound and proud of it! She studied sustainable urban development and restoration ecology at the University of Washington Tacoma, and works to help communities recognize and appreciate their integral place within the natural world. With experience ranging from community engagement and project management to legislative outreach and habitat restoration, Alex seeks to ensure people have both the space to be heard as well as agency over the communities in which they live. She holds that the best approach to any situation is to meet people where they are with humility and an open heart. While outside the office, you will likely find Alex working on DIY projects around the house, restoring her vintage camper, or filling orders for her sticker shop!
