“There is something special about books... books thrill you to the marrow; they talk to you, counsel you, admit you to their living, speaking friendship.They introduce other books; each one creates a desire for another.”

- Petrarch on Bookhunting, 1346


Alexandra is a California native raised in Vancouver, Canada. She studied history and political philosphy at Trinity Western University and earned a Masters in Social Policy at the London School of Economics as a Rotary Scholar.

Alexandra has held posts at the Federalist Society, the American Enterprise Institute, and the Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty.

Most recently, Alexandra served as a Policy Advisor for the US Department of Education, where she worked to administer an annual budget of $16 billion. She left to write her first book, on civility.

When she’s not reading a Platonic dialogue or planning her next expedition, you may find her knee deep in a mud pond hunting (and then releasing!) frogs and others amphibious life.

Alexandra lives with her incurably curious husband in Indianapolis, Indiana.
