A Midwesterner at heart, Alexandra Veatch has found a home in the mountains of Southwest Virginia and on the campus of Emory & Henry College. After attending Cave Spring High School in Roanoke, Veatch came to E&H to study Religion, Communications and Public Policy & Community Service. Outside of the classroom, she wrote and edited for The Whitetopper, served the students as a Head Resident Advisor and planned events for the Emory Activities Board.

After graduation, Veatch spent two years as an E&H Admissions Counselor. Later she worked to help build the region's Creative Economy as a Sales and Marketing Professional at Heartwood: Southwest Virginia's Artisan Gateway  and at the Abingdon Convention & Visitors Bureau. "Southwest Virginia is a truly distinct place. I have been all over the country and have never experienced anything as authentic and alive as the culture in this region. I challenge everyone from here or elsewhere to explore and discover SWVA," said Veatch.

Now, back on campus, as Assistant Director of First-Year Admissions, she serves local students from Washington Co. and student from the Upper Shenandoah Valley, Northern Virginia and the Northeast.
