Alexandra Garrison was born and raised in New York and moved to New Jersey to pursue her professional career. There she met and married her husband, Michael. They moved to California shortly after Michael became an officer in the United States Marine Corps.
Over the next 14 years, Alexandra served in the most noble and challenging of roles, that of Marine Corps wife and mother. She put off her own occupational aspirations in order to support her husband during a time of war and start a family. She raised two children and maintained the homefront while her husband deployed on three separate occasions to Iraq.
As a military spouse, Alexandra felt it her duty to educate herself on current events and understand the people and policies that shape our nation. She became very involved in her community, dedicating herself towards philanthropy, improving the local economy, promoting local business and raising public safety awareness. She volunteered her time with several organizations and with policymakers, ultimately becoming a recognized leader in the community. She was selected to hold positions in local nonprofit organizations and was the recipient of the Murrieta Chamber of Commerce Forty Under 40 award.
When the family relocated to Northern Virginia, Alexandra decided to pursue a longtime goal and became a real estate agent. She was determined to make a career in a field she was passionate about, helping others achieve the American dream of home ownership. Her love of community and her ability to match lifestyle with marketplace makes her an outstanding agent for her clients.
Alexandra is a hard working, energetic and committed member of the award winning real estate team, The Wolters Group of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Fairfax, Va.
