Rebecca Keefauver Alexander:
Real Life Experience Outside Politics.

“Becky Jo” Keefauver Alexander comes from six generations of Washington County farmers and learned hard work growing up on a dairy farm as the middle daughter of Billy Joe and Jean Keefauver. 

Becky Jo graduated from Daniel Boone High School and Milligan College, then taught as a Freshman English teacher in the public school system before setting out to seek her fortunes in the corporate world. 

Rebecca took a job with Philips Consumer Electronics Company (Magnavox) as a copywriter and was soon given a huge promotion in sales setting up catalog showrooms and opening 120 stores across the United States. 

After marrying Howie Alexander, she became National Marketing Manager for Accessories at Magnavox, then was promoted to National Sales Manager of Accessories, a job that took her to call on buyers for Sears, Target, Circuit City, Walmart, Sams, and Radio Shack. Rebecca helped build the business to record sales.

After her corporate career, Rebecca started her most important job as a mother to her two girls, Whitley and Madison. While raising her daughters, she earned a Masters in Education at East Tennessee State University with an emphasis in Storytelling, became involved with the Jonesborough Storytelling Guild, and started telling stories at churches, doing women’s retreats, teaching Sunday school teachers how to use storytelling, training at ministerial conferences, and being the keynote speaker at meetings, church camps, and celebrations. 

Rebecca helps run the family business, Dillow-Taylor Funeral Home, volunteers at the food pantry and teaches Sunday school and women’s Bible study at Boones Creek Christian Church.
