Programs Administrative Assistant
Alexandra Bellon is an advocate for personal growth in all areas of life. In the year 2010, Alexandra acquired a BS in Elementary Education and has been working with children for over 10 years. She experienced how being a mindful teacher and instilling mindfulness in students effected learning, positively transforming the class environment and making their overall education experience more pleasant. After several years of seeing the benefits mindfulness contribute to education and personal growth, she decided to continue her exploration in the field of wellness. In 2017, she completed the Professional Coaching Program at the University of Miami and attained a PCC level accreditation through the International Coach Federation.
Since then, Alexandra has been building a character education program for schools that focus on building positive character traits and serving the community. The students participating in the pilot program have embraced and internalized the pedagogy of character building resulting in academic gains, less behavior issues, and an encouraging environment. Her drive and determination to live with purpose and meaning led her to take the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program and join the MKM administrative team where she can continue to explore growth and wellness both personally and in education.
