Alex Collins

EventTech Project Manager


Prior to joining Cadmium, I worked in the history and museum field. During that time, I gained experience and skills in event planning, professional development programming, instructional design, and project management. In my previous role, I managed and organized the association’s first virtual conferences. I consider myself a life-long learner and am always eager to dive into new projects. I value organization and clear communication, and I have a passion for creating accessible, inclusive, and engaging experiences. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our dogs, Juniper and Hazel, playing board games with friends and family, crafting, reading science fiction and fantasy, and learning new things!
