Alexandra Smith

Alexandra joined the Fort Collins Coloradoan in June 2014. She’s a proud Rutgers grad who, prior to coming to Colorado, worked for the Asbury Park Press, another Gannett news organization. Alexandra was a lead trainer for journalists across Gannett sites in 2014, teaching her colleagues how to become metrics experts and include analytics in their daily and long-term newsroom strategies. In Fort Collins, Alexandra oversees the 8-person engagement team, which is responsible for strategic production, programming and promotion of newsroom content. When she’s not developing her understanding of how people consume news, the New Jersey transplant spends her time playing the piano, reading Shouts & Murmurs in the latest issue of The New Yorker, and learning to love all that living in Colorado has to offer.
