Alexandra received her Master’s in Education (Ed.M.) from Harvard University in Education Policy and Analysis and her Bachelor of Arts in Developmental Psychology and Education from Vassar College in New York. Aside from her formal education, she has been a lifelong learner, adding many therapeutic trainings and certifications based on the practices of neuroscience. Her early career spanned all levels of traditional education from pre-school, elementary, and high school through adult education. As well, she has worked in educational publishing where she was involved in developing reading programs, editing, marketing and teacher training.
For over a decade, Alexandra delivered programs based on the principles of neuroscience to students, both children and adults, with learning difficulties. As Director of multiple Arrowsmith programs in Canada and the United States from 2006 to 2015, she helped hundreds of students leverage the latest cognitive training techniques to reduce the impact of their learning difficulties or even resolve them completely. Resolved difficulties include students’ abilities to process, read, write, pay attention, listen, read social cues, plan, and reason.
