Alexa Schirtzinger is a staff writer with the Santa Fe Reporter. She has lived and worked in Spain, Uruguay, Honduras and El Salvador, where she spent two years as an agroforestry volunteer with the Peace Corps (2003-05). She has a B.A. in Environmental Geology and Spanish from Dartmouth College and an M.S. in Journalism from Columbia University. She has traveled extensively in every country in Central America except Belize and been lost in more small villages than she’d like to admit.
