Just last week, we welcomed our newest bee to the office (or as we like to call it, the Hive). Meet Alexandra Dickinson – or Alex, as she prefers to be called – who joins Beekeeper Group as an Account Manager.

As expected, our fifth hire definitely adds to the diverse and fun atmosphere. Not only is she well-versed in the life of Abraham Lincoln (a personal passion she’s got a Tumblr for), but Alex also loves everything social media.

Securing a Master’s from George Washington University in 2011, where she studied media strategy and political media systems, Alex went on to help launch and produce C-SPAN’s American History TV programming. While at C-SPAN she assisted in the production of content for air while functioning as a coordinator and project manager for their weekly slot of 48 hours of programming. Alex also helped build a dynamic Twitter following of history fans and C-SPAN aficionados under the @cspanhistory account.

A Michigan native, Alex is a die-hard Tigers and Pistons fan. In keeping with her Detroit Rock City area roots, she once ran a music venue in Ann Arbor called the EQMC.

When she’s not obsessing over Lincoln’s awesomeness, Alex is a tea and coffee enthusiast who’s garnered a passion for latte art. Check out her online musings by following Alex at @alexmae. And stay tuned to Hive Talkin’ as there’s sure to be more from our newest bee!
