Alexa is a former rolling stone who returned to her hometown of Philly to grow roots and watch them bloom. With a Bachelor’s of Journalism from Indiana University, Alexa set out to swim in the media sea of New York City, reporting for a Queens-based newspaper and serving as Editor-In-Chief for an arts and culture magazine where she won the New York Press Association’s second place Writer of the Year Award. After taking a year to travel the United States, Alexa settled in the Pacific Northwest, earning her PMP while working as a Project Manager in healthcare technology. She returned to Philadelphia in the spring of 2019, excited to explore her new (old) stomping grounds.
When she takes a break from captaining the dragon boat, Alexa can be found captaining actual boats, taking her Pomeranian, Moses, on a hike, teaching herself to play guitar, and baking the (self-proclaimed) world’s best apple pie.
