Alec Marshall

Alec Marshall has recently joined the AFPF Board. Alec and his wife, Jessica Boatwright, lived and worked at the URDT campus for two years while serving in the Peace Corps (2017-2019).

“I have an engineering background, and everything is problem-solving, problem-solving, problem-solving. So, coming to URDT and seeing the creative process at work has been really enlightening. Traditional relief efforts used in rural development don’t work. The communities take 1 step forward then 2 steps backward. It’s an oscillating approach. By using the creative approach, you get rid of the oscillation so people can create the lives they truly want.”
