Alex Theriot

Account Executive

Alex is unafraid of change. She’s moved every three years with her Navy family, living in Florida, in Maryland and in Hawaii until adapting to new circumstances was in her DNA. She has finally put down roots of her own in Washington, D.C.

As an Account Executive, Alex works on the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) Office of Academic Engagement team, where adaptability is critical. She combines her homeland security training and expertise to deploy critical communications support on a range of homeland security issues and policies affecting the higher education community, like cybersecurity, campus resilience, and research opportunities. Prior to joining Adfero, Alex interned at CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” helping identify breaking news and inside intelligence on all things politics. She also interned at the DHS' Office of Public Affairs, where she learned from key government and media contacts.

Alex graduated from the University of Maryland with a BA in Journalism, focusing on Global Terrorism. She is currently obtaining a MA in Applied Intelligence at Georgetown University.

Little-known fact: Alex once interviewed Josh Gad, the voice of Olaf in 'Frozen.' They did not build a snowman.
