In this episode, Alexandra shares how as a writer, she had no words to express the grief she experienced after her husband's death. Yet today, she looks back and finds the beauty and love her experience brought to her "new self."

Her plays were commissioned and premiered at American theatres On and Off-Broadway, as well as in featured international festivals.

In 2016, one year after the passing of her husband of 23 years, Alexandra pivoted from writing for the theater and founded the Make Meaning Workshop.
