Ms. Alexander has practiced environmental law for over two decades. She served as the Legislative Attorney in natural resources law for the Congressional Research Service for over eight years, examining legal issues related to wildlife laws, the National Environmental Policy Act, and federal lands management on behalf of Members of Congress and their staff. For over five years she was the Senior Research Counsel for the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Legal Program, focusing on coastal issues affecting the Gulf of Mexico such as the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, permitting related to aquaculture and energy development, and green stormwater infrastructure.

She plants trees any chance she gets, and loves birds and other critters.
