Carrie Alexander

Senior Associate

Carrie joined Isaacson, Miller in 2015 and brings extensive experience in higher education enrollment management, including work with the Joyce Ivy Foundation and two years as an admissions director at Lafayette College. In her time with our firm, she has focused on searches across numerous positions in higher education administration, independent schools, and research administration. Representative clients include the Saban Research Institute, Moorestown Friends School, University of Pittsburgh, and Brown, Tulane, and Rice Universities. During her time at Lafayette, Carrie recruited, evaluated, and yielded applicants as a member of both the domestic and international recruitment teams. She was instrumental in several innovations to the office's recruitment strategy, including completely overhauling its ambassador program and visitation strategy. Her recruiting experience also extends to the entertainment industry, where she spent two years at a talent agency vetting writers and directors as well as recruiting clients from top-tier MFA programs. While she capitalizes on her scouting and assessing skills at work, Carrie also applies these abilities to her volunteer efforts. She is on the planning committee for the Joyce Ivy Foundation College Admissions Symposium and conducts alumni interviews for the University of Pennsylvania.
