Meet Ale

Ale (short for Alexandra and not pronounced like Ginger Ale…hence her TikTok username @notthegingerale) found a passion for content marketing and social media when she was looking to integrate her love of writing with her background as a therapist. She approaches social media with a psychological mindset while using it as a vehicle for creativity. This outlook led Ale to HiBob, a SaaS that helps companies live by its motto, “put your people first.”

Born in Miami, FL, to Argentinean parents and having lived in Israel for 13 years, Ale never knows how to answer the question, “where are you from?” Currently, though, she remains in Israel with her husband, two sons, dog, and bird. Some of her biggest accomplishments include writing an 81,000-word book that she did nothing with, watching all 23 seasons of Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19 in five months (most of which was during maternity leave), and being first in line at her local Borders to get the 7th Harry Potter book.
