A business analyst with decision-making powers. That’s how Alexa, our Scrum Master certified product owner, describes her role at Springload. At all times, she’s value-oriented and believes there’s no point in delivering a product if it’s not delivering value. She’s in her element when leading others and making decisions based on the information in front of her.
Before making the journey to Aotearoa, Alexa studied a double major in Business and International Studies at American University in Washington, DC. It wasn’t long before she was managing IT projects for a range of NZ government organisations, including MBIE, Treasury, SSC, DPMC, MCDEM, MoH and MFAT. Her projects were just as diverse – from detail-focussed, day-to-day improvements to full-scale national projects that benefitted all New Zealanders.
Alexa’s dog obsessed. She loves spending time with her dog Ciara, though somehow makes time for other dogs through volunteering with the SPCA. She’s a talented knitter and crocheter, and will often be found with yarn in hand if she has any down time. As if that weren’t enough, she’s a die-hard Harry Potter fan and trivia challenger. With a mind like hers, she definitely does Ravenclaw – and Springload – proud.
