Alex Thorne - Sitka Whalefest
Alex will discuss the Sitka Sound Science Center’s lesser known endeavors and how they impact the Sitka business community. She will also update everyone on the upcoming Sitka WhaleFest’s events, happenings and new partnerships.
Alex Thorne is the WhaleFest and Business Development Director for the Sitka Sound Science Center. Originally from South Florida, her life long passion for Arabian horses and desire for higher education brought her to Michigan State University, in East Lansing. After graduating from MSU with a Bachelors Degree in Animal Science, she moved to Clearwater, FL to continue pursuing a career in the Arabian horse industry. There she managed an Arabian horse breeding & training facility. Through a multitude of work experiences since leaving Clearwater, she has gained a keen eye for details, business and building pathways to the “big picture”. Her passion for the outdoors and the ocean has been reignited since moving to Sitka with her husband, who is in the Coast Guard. One event she knew she planned to attend before she even arrived was Sitka WhaleFest, and it did not disappoint. The opportunity to be a part of WhaleFest and the Sitka Sound Science Center Team is an endeavor she is deeply enthusiastic about. She’s very excited to continue to build relationships and gain understanding of the Sitka community and people.
