Alexandra Murphy

    Head of Development

    Back to Our People

    Alexandra Murphy, known to most as Ali, plays an integral role in the organisation – helping us raise money! Heading up the development side of things, Ali’s focus is on raising much-needed funds to support the restoration and activation of the Convent site, increasing our valued supporter base and making sure everyone knows that the Abbotsford Convent Foundation is in fact a not-for-profit organisation. She has a Bachelor of Arts (Media & Communications) from the University of Sydney, and after a period of time in the corporate world of marketing and film, has since worked in various fundraising and development roles for not-for-profit organisations such as Redkite and MS Australia. She kick-starts every morning, without fail, with one of her famous green smoothies, which often comes after a morning yoga class (talk about making us feel guilty!). And to top it off, this nature-loving Sydney-sider spends her weekends swimming in the sea and riding her bike at sunset – and her lunchbreaks talking to the animals down by the Collingwood Children’s Farm. Yes, we have our very own Dr Harry Cooper onsite!
