Hello there! I’m Alexa Gonzaga, a recent graduate of The University of Texas at Austin. I hold a B.S. in public relations from the Stan Richards School of Advertising and Public Relations and a certificate in business foundations from the McCombs School of Business. I am currently seeking entry-level opportunities in communications, social media, and digital marketing.

During my time at UT-Austin, I served as vice president of public relations for Texas PRSSA – Dr. Alan Scott Chapter and as account executive for Texas Tower PR, the University’s student-run PR firm. I also completed internships at South by Southwest and Konnect PR while working on campus as a Social Media Marketing Assistant (and later, Social Media Marketing Team Supervisor) for UT University Unions.

In my spare time, I enjoy binge-watching TV shows, trying out new restaurants, and cheering on my Texas Rangers. Want to get in touch with me? I can be reached via email and LinkedIn.
