Alexandra Arrivillaga De Castro is an accomplished communications professional and Management Consultant.
Alexandra Arrivillaga De Castro first became familiar with business while attending Lesley University, where she was class president all 4 years, Alexandra received her Bachelor of Science in Management. After graduating in 2005, she attended Cambridge College, where she earned her Master of Management. She has since then completed coursework at Concord Law School and Capella University, and is currently pursuing her PhD at North Central University. She is the owner of Lock It Up Security LLC, a commercial-based telecommunications company in Boston, MA. The company works on a sub-contractor basis, installing security cameras in businesses. From humble beginnings in her basement back in 2009, Alexandra grew the company into what it is today, a leading security firm that has served such large companies as Pandora and Walmart as well as local businesses in the area. To this day, Lock It Up Security LLC works to serve as a world-class provider of electronic security and low-voltage solutions.
Community Involvement & Volunteer Work
When she isn’t Managing a Business , Alexandra Arrivillaga De Castro firmly believes in giving back to the community. While attending Lesley University, she was a regular community volunteer. Later, through her work with Lock It Up, Alexandra has made herself a well-known name in her local community. She’s actively involved as a volunteer in the Boston area, helping community stores manage their businesses. One of her main focuses is helping Metrowest and Greater Boston Area large Portuguese and Latino community; Alexandra speaks both Spanish and Portuguese, so she works to communicate and translate business aspects to them. In that same vein, she volunteers at the Cambridge Public Library as an English instructor, helping recent immigrants adjust to life in the US. From 2006 until 2009, she also worked as a GED instructor. She’s currently volunteering her time with the Salvation Army.
Travel & Culture
Another one of Alexandra’s great passions is travel; she makes an effort to travel as much as possible, and previously visited foreign countries around 4 times a year. To date Alexandra has visited over 20 countries. She first got the “travel bug” while attending Lesley University, when she visited Hawaii during her spring break. To this day, Hawaii remains one of her favorite places in the world. After spending her spring break in Hawaii, Alexandra then traveled to Italy, where she spent a summer learning Italian, which ties in with another great interest of hers: foreign languages. However, one of the most meaningful trips that she’s ever been was to Colombia. Her parents were born and raised in Barranquilla, Colombia and they educated her so she would have an understanding of her traditional heritage. Throughout her life, Alexandra learned her great grandfather, Diego A De, Castro, was the first governor in the department of Atlantico.
