Prior to beginning pupillage, Alexa specialised in Forensic Mental Health, working in a mental health unit, predominantly working with personality disorders. Alexa has also worked for the police, appearing in the Magistrates courts on behalf of the police in bail variation hearings, and co-compiling the force response to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA).

During her first six, Alexa spent time observing serious crime trials in the Crown Court, including rape and murder trials. Alexa also observed, among others, Placement Order final hearings in the Family Court.

Since beginning her second six, Alexa appears in the Magistrates Court prosecuting and defending. Alexa has also appeared in the Crown Court. Alexa appears in hearings in the Family Court, in public law cases such as in a revocation of a Placement Order on behalf of the Local Authority, and private law cases, such as non-molestation order hearings.
