Alexx Goeller was born and raised in Utah. She has been working in the international government and non-profit sector for the past 10 years. She graduated Cum Laude from Westminster College with a degree in International Business and French in 2011. She then went to serve in the United States Peace Corps working on community economic development, particularly through female empowerment, in Senegal from 2012 - 2014.

 

After her return from Senegal, she began working in the Refugee Services field here in Utah. She managed the youth program at the International Rescue Committee for a year before moving on to working on federal programs, youth programs, grant writing, partnership development and community development for 4 years at the State of Utah Refugee Services Office. During her time working with refugees here in Utah, she also achieved her masters degree from Westminster College in Global Community Leadership and Nonprofit Management. After a harrowing cancer experience where she lost her father in 2019, she left refugee services to pursue a community development management job with the American Cancer Society which is where she works currently. In her personal time, she enjoys reading, writing, cooking, baking, relaxing, hiking, camping, traveling, and exploring with her husband, Leo (newly married in 2020!) and their sweet pitbull, Miss Betty White.
