JEN ALEXANDER  -  Founder, Executive & Creative Director Wanted to be when I grew up:  Thought I'd go to college in Puerto Rico, where my two oldest brothers lived; then I'd move to New York City and be an actress on Broadway.  Instead, I went to Wesleyan, fell for Middletown and started a children's museum. Childhood thing:  Hanging out with Queen Josie and the other Snoopies, a slightly wicked imaginary society created by my brother Mark. And reading. And playing in the woods. This photo:  I'm apparently demonstrating the choreography from the musical "Mame" while my mom takes a vacation photo in Tula, Mexico.  My Dad and brothers Mark & Mike nonplussed.
