Alexandra Sulack joined Canright as an Admin/Marketing Coordinator in 2016, where she’s quickly become an indispensable member of the team. Along with helping the office run smoothly, Alexandra’s duties include performing website updates, coordinating social media platforms for Canright and its clients, and writing and editing articles, blogs and emails.
A graduate of North Park University, Alexandra holds a Master of Music in Vocal Performance. She believes communication is key to understanding and building relationships, whether that’s through her work at Canright, performing music or advancing the lineage of vocal music through teaching.
Outside of work, Alexandra runs her own voice lesson studio in North Center where she teaches students and somehow finds time to be the marketing and communications director (we think she’s acquired Hermione’s Time Turner). Alexandra is an avid photographer specializing in headshots and stage photography.
