Alexandra is a Nakoda woman belonging to Cega’kin (Carry the Kettle) First Nation, Treaty 4 territory and currently resides in Calgary, AB on Treaty 7 Territory. She is the Program Manager for ImaGENation (Imagine-Nation), an Indigenous youth mentorship program facilitated in partnership between ICE, SevenGen, and Student Energy. Alexandra is grateful to be part of a collaborative program that nurtures the
leadership potential of Indigenous youth to launch clean energy projects through mentorship, cultural guidance, and funding support.
Alexandra holds a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan. A community-driven individual, she strives to apply her education in combination with Indigenous ways of knowing to solve issues that impact Indigenous communities as it relates to energy, infrastructure, sustainability, and socioeconomics. Alexandra’s goal is to empower Indigenous communities to establish sovereignty through community-based project work and capacity-building initiatives. She hopes to nurture an interest in STEM amongst Indigenous women and youth, as it is her belief that Indigenous knowledge can largely contribute to an evolving holistic framework in the field, which will ultimately advance meaningful, tangible, and long-lasting solutions for Indigenous communities.
