Delighted by handwritten notes, spending time in her kitchen and going for a run.
An avid traveler and dinner-party enthusiast, Alexia joined the KPS3 crew in 2016 as an account director, bringing with her over a decade of experience in public relations and marketing. When she’s not in our offices using her super savvy communication skills to help manage clients and their projects, you can find her outside, hiking the hills around northern Nevada in her trusty (yet trendy) hiking socks and boots.
Alexia earned her B.A. in journalism in 2001 from the University of Nevada, Reno, and has since used the skills she gained there in a number of high-level positions. In 2001, Alexia accepted a position as a communications associate at the Nevada Museum of Art, three years later returning to the museum as its director of communications, where she was part of the team that launched the building’s grand re-opening. In between her roles with the Nevada Museum of Art, Alexia worked as a public relations business partner at Renown Health, where she focused her efforts on the company’s substantial rebranding campaign.
In 2009, Alexia joined the team at Bayer Properties at The Summit Reno where she worked as the area marketing manager for the destination shopping center. In this role, Alexia was able to flex her (super strong) marketing muscles, quickly earning a promotion to The Summit’s assistant general manager and then general manager, a title she held until making the move to join the KPS3 team. Perhaps her greatest achievement, though, is earning her professional distinction as an accredited Public Relations professional (APR), a credential only 5,000 professionals throughout the country currently hold.
Alexia volunteers her time with a number of organizations and currently serves on the board of directors for the Nevada Women’s Fund, as Vice-President of Marketing for the Western Industrial Nevada board of directors, as co-chair of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Business Council and as a member of the American Lung Association’s Women’s Cabinet. She is a past president of and remains active in the local chapter of the Public Relations Society of America and is a recipient of the chapter’s Mark Curtis Sr. Chapter Member of the Year award. Alexia was honored as a Twenty-Under-40 recipient and, in 2008, as a Woman of Achievement. A born hostess with knack for entertaining, Alexia enjoys few things more than spending time in the kitchen whipping up a perfectly roasted chicken (with a good bottle of bubbly, of course).
