Asian Counseling and Referral Service has welcomed Alexandra Olins as its new Employment and Citizenship director.

She will also lead the agency’s career assistance and job skills program, which provides training and placement services in nine languages to more than 1,500 people each year.

Before coming to ACRS, Olins worked at the Paraprofessional Healthcare. She is a certified bilingual teacher, and holds a BA from Wesleyan University and a master’s degree in public policy from Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government. (end)
