Alexa Martin

Alexa Martin is a junior at Michigan State University majoring in Advertising Management with a minor in Public Relations.

Before becoming a student practitioner at Martin Waymire, Alexa provided photography services for Voters Not Politicians, Sunrise Movement and Martin Waymire. She also worked to direct, film and edit a short video to raise awareness of the fears women have of sexual assault on a daily basis. Along with photography and film, Alexa has a passion to advocate for her beliefs. In 2018, she organized an assembly at her high school to raise awareness on school safety and gun violence. Over 600 people from her community attended the assembly to show their support for victims and the families affected by gun violence. Going forward, Alexa wants to continue to fight for social justice and equality.

In her free time you can find Alexa petting her two cats (June and Willow), playing video games, spending time with the people she loves, and skateboarding around East Lansing.

Favorite part of working at Martin Waymire so far: The people! Having the opportunity to be surrounded by such talented, intelligent and kind colleagues makes working at Martin Waymire a blast. It’s inspiring to see everyone’s drive to make Michigan a better place.

What you love most about Michigan: I love the versatility in Michigan’s landscape. The lower half of Lower Peninsula, northern half of the Lower Peninsula, and Upper Peninsula all provide different experiences. I am proud to live in a state that has beautiful islands, cliffs, forests, sand dunes and lakes while also being home to vibrant cities like Grand Rapids, Lansing, Detroit and Traverse City.
