Alex is Shanghai Family’s Deputy Editor, who started writing for Ringier as a freelancer back in 2014. A former ESL secondary school and kindergarten teacher, she loves researching anything beauty, fashion, mindful or wellness related – among other topics. Originally from the UK, she was a journalist in Madrid, Spain, and a copywriter for a UK travel website before moving to Shanghai in early 2014 with her partner (now husband). In her free time she loves to travel, blast out her favorite songs and to try all the dinner hotspots in the city. She’s also worked as the Beauty and Wellness Editor on our partner magazine, City Weekend.
