Name: Alexandra Bitonti
Job Title: Sports Specialist
Department: Marketing, Entertainment and Development
What do you do at USO-Metro? I manage USO-Metro’s sports partnerships with the local professional and collegiate teams as it relates to their military community engagement/outreach.
How did you get started in the non-profit world? In college, I was a Family Science major at the University of Maryland. As part of the core curriculum I had to complete an internship in the human/social services field. I knew I was interested in working with military families so I created an internship with the Inpatient Warrior and Family Liaison Office at Walter Reed Bethesda. While working with inpatient wounded warriors, I had the opportunity to work with several nonprofits, including the USO, as they provided programs and services to those in the hospital. It was an extremely rewarding experience and I have stayed in the field ever since!
What is one thing you like about your job? When I have the opportunity to highlight service members at sports games: The 30-60 seconds when all the fans throughout the stadium are on their feet applauding (and often chanting “U-S-A”) overwhelms me with pride every time. Having the ability to show service members how much they are truly appreciated is why I do this job.
What do you like about USO-Metro as an organization? On a daily basis I work for a mission in which I truly believe.
What qualities do you think are important in candidates applying to work at USO-Metro? Working at USO-Metro really takes resourcefulness and initiative. We work cross-departmentally a lot, so being a team player is huge!
