Alexandra is a foreign correspondent working for Reuters in Venezuela, where she investigates the opaque state oil company, covers often violent protests, and also frequently writes about health and social issues. She has also reported for Reuters in Argentina and Chile. Prior to that, she worked in the United States and her native Switzerland.

Alexandra speaks English, French, and Spanish. In 2011 she graduated from Brown University with a degree in International Relations.

Reuters named her Reporter of the Year in 2015 “for breaking through the iron-clad offices of Venezuelan state oil firm PDVSA, and for a series of smart stories on how the economic crisis and food shortages have battered support for the socialist ruling party and hit the legacy of Hugo Chavez.”
