“I believe that there is always something new to learn in marketing, it’s always evolving”. Alexia likes to stay ahead of the curve by immersing herself into social media and marketing trends, but also learning from leadership. “Marketing is in no way linear, there's always something new to learn and new skills to pick up on. I love getting insight from the Botrista leadership team. Being able to collaborate with such intelligent and skilled individuals is my favorite way to expand my knowledge”!
Alexia’s favorite way to unwind after work is listening to music. “I take pride in my Apple Music playlists. Music is a big part of my life, whether I want to relax or hype myself up for a workout session. You can find most of my music to be either house or r&b genres”! In her free time, you can find Alexia at the gym. “Weightlifting is my favorite way to spend my time. It challenges me to become stronger physically, of course. I also appreciate how I have been able to challenge myself mentally on my fitness journey”.
A quote that Alexia lives by is “we’re not here for a long time, we’re here for a good time”. “Growing up, my dad always said this quote to my siblings and I. When I was young, I just thought it was silly. Now, I really try to live by this. This quote often reminds me that I should do things I love, take risks, and find happiness in the little things”!
Alexia’s favorite Botrista drink is the Mango Lemonade! “Bonus points for adding boba. It’s the best combination”!🧋
