After the big move, we welcomed a new talented Brightonian to the team. Alex Bates is a St. Louis native. Her love for the city is reflected in her personal blog, Get to know Alex and why she sparked our interest!

Meet Alexandra Bates

Where are you from?

I grew up in Festus, Missouri.

Do you have a spouse, kids, pets?

No, to the first two; thankfully, I only have a dog—Lola, a 3-year-old Sheltie.

Before Brighton, what was your professional role? 

I previously worked part time from home, proofing ads for a company called Journatic. I also wrote a weekly food story for my hometown’s newspaper, and I wrote stories and took photos for my website,

Now, what is your current title at Brighton? …and what does this role entail?

My title is Quality Control/Proofreader. I proofread and make sure everything’s top quality.

Do you have a favorite thing about working at Brighton?

So far, I really enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and friendly people.

What was your first week working at Brighton like?  

Because my position is a brand new one, my first week I was doing a mix of things and helping out anywhere I was needed.

Do you have any hobbies?

I like to write (non-fiction & poetry), read (I love Capote & Steinbeck), travel (road-trips and more), cook & bake, sing (but not if people are listening) and shop at antique & thrift stores.

What is your favorite food?

That is difficult. I have a few: goat cheese, Elicia’s Pizza, popcorn, Greek salads, Waffle House waffles and more.

A fun fact about yourself?

I own a pair of bowling shoes.
