Alessandra Pollina: Founder
Alessandra grew up in a small town in Vermont before moving to Boston to attend Boston University’s College of Communication. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Communications with a focus on public relations, and a minor in anthropology. Throughout her college years she held many internships in the PR field at some of the best agencies in Boston. This vast array of experiences became the foundation of her PR career and positioned her to launch her own company, pollina PR + marketing, a full-service boutique PR and marketing agency, in 2012.
In addition to offering full service PR, Alessandra also loves to work one on one with business owners to train them on the tactics, strategy, and implementation best-practices for carrying out their own PR and marketing, so that they are empowered to promote their businesses and build their brands. She offers individualized trainings, in-person workshops, and a self-paced online course all to this end. She gets particularly fired up by working with fellow female entrepreneurs, and loves to take part in spreading their messages to the world. In 2016 she founded the Female Millennial Entrepreneurs Boston networking group which aims to bring likeminded entrepreneurs and business owners together for in-person connection and learning experiences. In 2019 she launched The Female Millennial Entrepreneur Podcast, a podcast by and for female millennial entrepreneurs, inspired by the group but with an international reach.
She lives in Boston with her husband and 5-year-old son.
