Hi, I'm Alesia.

Since joining World Animal Protection in 2018, I have directed all U.S. programs to end animal suffering. With several decades of international and domestic non-profit leadership experience, I provide strategic direction for the organization’s campaigns, communications, fundraising and finance.

My areas of expertise include animal welfare issues, animal sentience, factory farming, exotic pet ownership, wildlife used as entertainment, and World Animal Protection research and investigations.

My blog posts will focus on sharing our research, stories, and progress towards improving the lives of animals around the world.
