Alexandra Camp is the Branch Manager of Citizens Bank in East Northport. She joined the Rotary Club during the pandemic as a way to connect with the community. She has continued in The Rotary Club not only because it feels great to make a difference, but because of the friendships and networks that it has created. Being a triplet, Alexandra is used to working with and having the support of a team. The Rotary Club does just that- it is a great platform to advocate for causes that you care about and have a fun time while helping others. Alexandra is the Past President and current Treasurer. She is Vice President of the East Northport Chamber of Commerce and loves volunteering her time with local non-profit organizations like Girls Inc. Outside of work, you will probably find Alexandra playing with her 14lb tuxedo cat, any of her three dogs, her two sisters, her adorable baby niece, her two chinchillas, or feeding her giant chocolate millipede. One of her goals for this Rotary year is to combine her love of animals with her desire to help by hosting a pet food and cleaning supply drive to benefit the local animal shelters.
