The best thing about consulting is that it allows us to work collaboratively, and I am convinced that we find the best way when we shine together as a team, with all our gifts and talents.

Alexandra has over 15 years of consulting experience developing environmental studies and permits throughout the mining industry, and significant experience in the energy, transportation and construction industries working on road, port, airport, and infrastructure projects. Some of the most important mining projects in which she had collaborated with environmental studies and permitting are: Las Bambas, Lagunas Norte, Pierina, Cerro Corona, Shahuindo, La Arena, La Zanja, Tantahuatay Ciénaga Norte, San Gabriel, and more.

As Environmental & Social Sciences Manager based in our Lima office, Alexandra leads a multidisciplinary team with environmental engineers, biologist, and sociologist responsible for delivering environmental services throughout the life of a mining project, from conceptualization, commissioning through to closure. She leads the team to development of environmental impact assessment (EIA, EIAsd, ITS, among others), the development and implementation of mine closure and environmental liabilities closure plans, obtaining authorizations, and mining and sectorial permits, development of environmental and social audits, and more.

Alexandra’s push for innovation has led to important contributions for the clients, mainly through her work identifying and alerting external factors that impact the viability of mining projects. These factors include the identification of permits/authorizations to be processed in the different stages of execution, the social management with the communities near the project, the identification of water issues, and other ecosystem services in the development area.

Alexandra is an environmental engineer with a degree from the Universidad Nacional Agraria La Molina and also has a diploma in Environmental Management from ESAN Graduate School of Business in Peru, and several studies in environmental legislation.
