Assistant Director of Content

Alexandria Polanosky is an Ohio University School of Visual Communication alumna. Upon graduating with a Bachelor of Science and certificates in both environmental studies and food and society, Alexandria was an AmeriCorps volunteer for the Appalachian Center for Economic Networks, a local non-profit. She continued her work there as a multimedia designer while also freelancing for various non-profits and businesses across the Appalachian region. Her work has taken her through the foothills and hollers of West Virginia, Southeast Ohio, Virginia and Kentucky, and though she left Athens for a few brief summers, she never quite could say goodbye to this small town and the OHIO community. Outside of her work with the SACM team, Alexandria enjoys playing with her cat, Snacks, being outside as much as possible and eating good food.
