Alexandra Arboleda moved to Tucson, Arizona when she was seven years old and fell in love with the Arizona lifestyle. Her father was a Professor of Political Science at University of Arizona and her mother was a high school English teacher. Some of Alexandra's fondest family memories involve riding her horse and hiking with her family in the mountains near Tucson. Through these experiences she developed a love of the outdoors and a respect for the importance and the scarcity of water in an arid environment. Alexandra's travels through Latin America in her twenties expanded her love of the outdoors and her awareness of the necessity for sustainable water supplies in all parts of the world. Now, as a mother of two kids, she cares about the water legacy we leave for future generations.
Alexandra has dedicated her career to solving Arizona’s water and natural resource challenges. The depth and breadth of her experience as a water attorney give her a unique and diverse understanding of the issues related to management of Arizona’s Colorado River supplies. She has experience working on the general stream adjudications and Indian water rights settlements, as well as surface water rights, groundwater management and the Law of the Colorado River. During her career, she has represented cities, farms, utilities, water providers, environmental non-profits and an Indian tribe. As an attorney with The Storey Lawyers, Alexandra enjoys seeking creative solutions that benefit all parties in resolving difficult and complex challenges. Alexandra received her B.A. in political science from Stanford University and her J.D. from University of Arizona.
