Alexandria Smith

Executive Assistant
Office 816-531-6500

Alexandria Smith is an Executive Assistant to Scott Penning and Andrew Watters at Strategic Wealth Partners. Alex majored in Marketing at the University of Central Missouri and is excited to be a part of one of the most successful teams at Northwestern Mutual.

Alex strives for excellence every single day, and begins with self-affirmations of consistence, abundance, and breaking down barriers that prevent her from being anything but the best.  “The Best” does not only define her work professionally, but being the best friend, dog-mom, family member, neighbor, and confidant to her peers.  Integrity is what fuels her frame of mind and motivates her initiatives to aide and support industry leaders.

In her free time, Alex lives an active lifestyle – hiking, camping, canoeing, exploring nature – are all activities she enjoys especially during the warmer months in Kansas City. She is a dog-mom to Lulu, her Yorkie who is the sweetest dog on the planet. There isn’t a Pinot Noir she doesn’t like and will try anything once.
