Alexandra is Engineering Manager for the NYC Cloud Code team at Google. As an IC she thrived on delivering to stakeholders more than they'd thought possible; as a people leader she loves integrating the engagement of her people with the advancement of the company. Alexandra co-founded Women Tech Leaders NYC, hosts RLS NYC IRL, reads >100 books a year, and gives blood regularly. During WFH she's missing bountiful salad lunch buffets, wearing her collection of exquisite stilettos to work, making bad jokes to unsuspecting strangers at meetups, and eye-contact. She'll be going back to an office right as soon as it's safe to do so.
