Alexandra Coughlin

Senior Executive Associate and Board Liaison

Alexandra joined the GreenLight Fund in 2018 as an Executive Assistant. Prior to joining GreenLight, she worked in the local food movement, most recently as a Front of House Manager for a Cambridge restaurant group where she influenced local sourcing. Her passion for local food grew from her experience working on a local family farm in her hometown of Sandwich, Massachusetts. After 4 years of working in agriculture, she accepted a position with the Plymouth Farmers’ Market as their operations manager where she helped to connect local farmers with their greater community. Alexandra uses her operational acumen to support GreenLight in their mission to uplift families out of poverty across the nation.
