My name is Alexa Ard, and I am a foreign video editor at The Washington Post. I produce and edit videos covering international news with a focus on Europe, Latin America, Canada and the Caribbean. 

Before joining The Post, I worked in McClatchy’s D.C. bureau as a national video producer for the company’s 30 U.S. newsrooms, including The Miami Herald and The Sacramento Bee. I also worked on the McClatchy Studios’ team to produce a 10-episode documentary series called The War Within. The series was recognized by The White House News Photographers Association’s 2019 Eyes of History: Multimedia Contest.

I am also the recipient of a ‘People’s Voice’ Webby – Best Use of Interactive Video for my work on a collaborative McClatchy project called Trump’s Inner Circle: The Ties to Russia.  

Prior to McClatchy, I produced short-form documentaries from Trinidad and Tobago, and Belize on crime prevention and the environment.

My work has also been published in USA Today, the Reno Gazette-Journal, News21 and Reno Public Radio

Through journalism I want to help people feel heard and stay informed.
