Alexandra grew up in Oakville, Ontario, and moved to Alberta in 2016 after completing her J.D. and M.B.A. at the University of Ottawa. She was called to both the Alberta Bar and New York Bar in 2017. 

 Alexandra’s practice is focused on civil litigation, and she has appeared before the Provincial Court of Alberta and the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta in a variety of criminal and civil matters.

 Before joining Birdsell Grant, Alexandra completed her LL.M. at the University of California Berkeley, with an emphasis in law and technology. Alexandra’s studies concentrated on the integration of machine learning tools into the justice system. 

Outside the office, Alexandra has continued to explore the legal implications associated with the use of machine learning tools. She is currently working as a research assistant on a project that examines the social and ethical implications of aged-based bias in artificially intelligent systems. Alexandra is an avid hiker, fencer, and runner.
