A Mississippi native, Alex grew up in Oxford and made his way to Mississippi State to earn a Bachelors and Masters in Wildlife and Wetland Ecology. Before joining the Conservancy, Alex’s job experiences have all been associated with the outdoors. He was a dog trainer and duck guide for Wildrose Kennels in Oxford, MS. While at Mississippi State, Alex worked as a wildlife technician with the US Army Corps of Engineers, assisting the foresters and biologists in managing over 100,000 acres for wildlife on the four flood control reservoirs. He’s also enjoyed guiding duck hunts for the Boyd family at Beaver Dam near Tunica, MS, where he now resides as duck blind’s chief coffee maker when he’s there. Alex joined the Conservancy in 2012 as the freshwater director and transitioned into his current role in 2013.
