Originally from the United States, Alexandra became an IT Business Analyst shortly after completing her Master’s degree at University College, Isle of Man.

As part of her Master’s programme, Alexandra took her first steps into the world of IT through several work placements with PDMS Limited. This is an Isle of Man and Scotland-based IT consultancy that delivers software to clients all over the world. She was tasked with leading the launch and pilot for the First Point Community Portal, a local initiative to help the emergency services use technology to provide better care to vulnerable people in times of crisis.

After completing her degree and earning the Isle of Man Newspapers’ Awards for Excellence, Young Achiever of the Year 2018, for her work on FirstPoint, PDMS offered Alexandra a full time role. Alexandra has been an Analyst ever since.

Business analysts seek to investigate and understand business problems and then solve them, often with technology. One aspect of her work Alexandra particularly enjoys is working with stakeholders both locally and internationally to understand users’ needs and translate them into requirements for software development.

As a Senior Business Analyst at PDMS and a Voluntary Senior Leadership Team Member for Young Business Analysts (YBA), Alexandra focuses on helping others grow and develop in the workplace and encourages students and young people to consider an IT career in business analysis. In 2023, Alexandra was named an Isle of Man 30 Under 30 Winner for her work in the business analysis community.

Now also a Love Tech mentor, one of her objectives is to encourage students to consider a career in IT and specifically in business analysis. This is because so often people start out as developers and only realise later that they can combine their love for technology with a passion for working with people via the business analyst role.  In addition to this, Alexandra is familiar with such topics as software testing, software engineering, IT infrastructure and IT project management and can advise in any of these areas.

In her spare time, Alexandra enjoys cooking homemade meals, taking walks around the Island with her fiancé, and consuming as much science fiction as she can.
