Alexandra has a passion for helping people and uplifting those around her, whether through acts of service or small tokens of appreciation. In her legal practice, she has focused this passion on the development and preservation of affordable housing, specifically through the issuance of municipal securities and low-income housing tax credits, including credit-enhanced and non-credit-enhanced public offerings and private placements of rated and unrated bonds backed by proceeds of FHA, Ginnie Mae, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans. She serves as bond counsel, issuer’s counsel, trustee’s counsel, lender’s counsel and underwriter’s counsel and works with developers nationwide. Her clients include municipalities, state and local housing agencies, for-profit developers, non-profit housing organizations, national banking associations and investment banking firms. These transactions can involve many parties and complex financial and legal structures, which Alexandra sees as opportunities to help all parties achieve their goals and to forge lasting partnerships among the participants.
Recently, she acted as bond counsel in an innovative pooled finance, which leveraged $6 million of private equity and $12 million in multi-family private activity bonds to rehabilitate an RD portfolio consisting of 225 scattered units throughout Oklahoma. Alexandra also served as bond counsel in connection with the first RAD for PRAC conversion in the country, redeveloping a 45-unit senior housing facility in Chillicothe, Ohio.
Prior to joining Dinsmore, Alexandra worked in a variety of roles and careers, including as a law clerk in the Public Utilities Section of the Ohio Attorney General’s office, as a restaurant manager, a decorative painter, and as a performer. She uses this diverse background and the skills she developed through her wide-ranging experiences to help her think more creatively and empathetically in the service of her clients and those they serve.
Alexandra is the co-chair of the Firm’s Leadership Academy, which is our internal training program for new attorneys and serves on the Firm’s Professional Development Committee. In addition to her internal contributions, Alexandra currently serves as the Secretary of the Board for the Ohio Chapter of Women in Public Finance, is on the Board of the Ohio Women’s Bar Foundation and is a member of the Ohio Women’s Affordable Housing Network.
