Aleidria began her B.S. in Biology at Eastern Washington University, Cheney Washington. In 2000, Aleidria received an invitation to conduct coral reef research and mangrove swamp water quality analysis aboard the RV Heraclitus for the Planetary Coral Reef Foundation. After finishing her post Aleidria lived abroad in England and Italy and returned back to the US in 2003. Aleidria began teaching at a private middle school in Schenectady, New York while she completed her undergraduate degree in Environmental Sciences with an emphasis in Ecological Education from Empire State College in 2005. During her last year as an undergraduate she founded and ran a non-profit organization, The Organization for Education and Science Integration (OEDSI), and carried out case studies and pilot programs in the US, Vanuatu and Ecuador. Aleidria's interests include providing education reform processes that build a bridge between the disparate values of the human and natural economies and developing strategic education processes for communities, educators and students to use to analyze local biological and cultural carrying capacities and disseminate this knowledge on a global scale.
