Alex is a Senior at the University of Georgia, double majoring in Communication and Advertising. She became interested in journalism at a young age. “Throughout middle and high school, I watched Rory Gilmore on Gilmore Girls most every day. When I decided to attend the University of Georgia, I knew I wanted to be a part of UGA’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communications,” says Alex. “I aspire to someday work as a creative in advertising. My dream is to help build and write ad campaigns that change hearts and minds in addition to sales.”

Now, Mother Plug provides users with a concert calendar, promotes artists’ albums on iTunes and works to sell tickets to their shows. We’re even hosting our very first concert starring Anders Osbourne on August 14 at Birmingham’s Avondale Brewing Company. Seeing Mother Plug Music and my responsibility within the company grow has been one of my most rewarding experiences of my life.”
