A native of South Carolina, Alexandra Martinez (she, her, ella) earned her B.A. in global studies at the University of South Carolina in 2022. As an undergrad, she was a University Ambassador and gave over 100 tours, so she is ready and excited to be participating in orientation at Vanderbilt this year. During her time at University of South Carolina, she participated in internships and passion projects surrounding mental health, and the human development counseling program at Peabody College is a continuation of that for her. Living in Nashville will be her first time moving out of state, and she and her Australian Shepherd, Sadie, are super excited! She loves cooking and baking, good movies and TV, and her love language is gift giving.
