She/ Her

Driven by her desire to provide excellent legal service to Indigenous communities, Alexa’s core focuses as a lawyer at Woodward and Company are environmental and regulatory law, governance, lands, and Aboriginal rights and title.

Alexa is originally from Vancouver, and her studies saw her attend and graduate from the University of Victoria with a B.A. in political science and environmental studies. She then returned to UVic for law school to complete her Juris Doctor degree with a concentration in environmental law and sustainability. While at law school, she received the James H.C. Walker Memorial Prize in Environmental Law.

During her legal studies, Alexa completed clinical terms at the UVic Law Centre and the Environmental Law Centre providing free legal advice. She also worked as a co-op student at the Environmental Law Centre and served on their board of directors. Alexa has since been called to the B.C. Bar and has been practicing at Woodward and Company since 2022.

In her role at the firm, Alexa is determined to assist First Nations communities on their path of self-determination, while ensuring colonial governments are held accountable for historic and continuing injustices.
