BIO Alexandra Pastine works with school districts and public agencies across the country to help mold and implement construction and infrastructure plans that are effective and efficient while maintaining the lowest possible cost.

Alexandra will receive her Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from the University of California, Berkley in December 2002. To achieve this goal she has been attending evening classes for the last 2 years while maintaining her full-time job helping public municipalities to operate efficiently thus saving scarce tax payer money.
