She consults and facilitates gatherings for area nonprofits, including Shenandoah National Park, Piedmont Dispute Resolution Center, Rappahannock County Historical Society, RappFLOW, and the Rappahannock Conservation Roundtable. Alexia served as Chief Litigation Counsel for the Securities and Exchange Commission, where she received the Presidential Rank Award "Distinguished Executive," and she was appointed in 1986 as Independent Counsel under the 1974 Ethics in Government Act. She holds a BA from Douglass College, Rutgers University, and was inducted into its Society for Distinguished Achievement in 2000. Her JD is from George Washington University Law School, and she chaired its Law Alumni Association -- receiving their Distinguished Achievement Award -- and served as a University Trustee. In 1998, Alexia received the Award for Outstanding Lawyering from New York University's Brennan Center for Justice.
