Alexandra Shannon

The Profit of Non-Profits

Alexandra is a Marketing major from Rock Springs, WY. She is passionate about sustainability, ethics, and non-profit work. In her internship with the Cowboy Joe Club, the philanthropic arm the UW athletics department, Alexandra was responsible for a number of tasks, including donor coordination, creating campaign materials, managing social media accounts, and maintaining office coordination. She also participated in and organized several events.

 Alexandra says that working in this fast-paced environment has helped her clarify her career objectives, and that her internship has further inspired her to pursue a career in non-profit work. 


When asked about the internship experience, she said, "I have been fortunate enough to network with and learn from many successful individuals. The skills I have acquired while at the Cowboy Joe Club have led to many opportunities I will forever be grateful for."

Today Alexandra continues to stay involved with non-profits, and has even picked up another internship with Feeding Laramie Valley!
