As Director of Strategic Communications at the National Gallery of Canada Foundation, Alexia is privileged to build support for the nation’s visual arts heritage. Now, as an ambassador for Women for Nature – an initiative of Nature Canada – she hopes to do the same for the wild spaces, flora, and fauna that make up Canada’s natural heritage. Alexia received an Honours degree in Political Science from the University of Victoria. After earning a Master of Journalism degree from Carleton University, she began her career in broadcast journalism, working as a reporter and producer for CTV, Rogers TV, and Global. For both television and print, Alexia has covered various environmental issues, including green living, species at risk, and sustainable development. Alexia left television to work on the Hill which ultimately led to her starting her own consultancy and becoming a leading expert in communications, government relations, and development strategy. She now uses those skills at the National Gallery where she believes the nexus of creativity, innovation, and sustainability can bring solutions for Canada’s future generations.
Alexia, her husband, and two children live in Canada’s beautiful capital city, Ottawa.
