"Alexa was in a word: amazing. Her message addressing inequality touched on themes of empowerment, positivity and gratitude. At such a young age, Alexa is already a national figure hosting national conferences and speaking to major corporations. She electrified and inspired the crowd. It was amazing to experience."
Alexa founded her first business in high school becoming the sole licensee to design jewelry for an L.A. based fashion company. This entrepreneurial spirit led her to starting a blog in college, Hello Perfect, which served the purpose of helping young women gain confidence in themselves and attracted the likes of Mark Cuban, Shaquille O’Neal, Steve Madden, Marc Jacobs and other influential celebrities.
In college, only months before graduation, Alexa found herself in a coma with a 1% chance of living. This near-death experience led to a number of health issues but today, Alexa sees this experience as something to be grateful for as it has been her prime motivation and inspiration to share her story authentically with audiences all over the world.
Alexa was featured on the cover of Meetings & Conventions Magazine as 1 of 15 “Young Millennial Go-Getters To Watch” and named one of the "Most Powerful Women In Fort Lauderdale" by Gold Coast's Fort Lauderdale Daily.
She has also been featured on Cheddar TV, FOX, ABC, CBS, OWN and in Entrepreneur, Glamour Magazine, Mashable, and TEDx among others. With a following that reaches over 75,000 people on and offline, Alexa’s mission is to make a difference in at least one persons life every day.
At age 17, Alexa started her first company designing jewelry for the L.A. based fashion company OmniPeace.
The summer of 2011 while interning in New York City Alexa founded Hello Perfect®, an inspirational blog with the mission to instill confidence in young girls and women.
The first DreamCatcher Wall was created to inspire students to write down and "catch" their dreams. This led to Alexa creating 7 more DreamCatcher Wall's across Florida collecting over 5,000 students' dreams.
Months before graduating college Alexa's body went into septic shock. She was induced into a medical coma and was given a one-percent chance of living.
Alexa's near-death experience brought on a string of health issues including being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. While stuck at home trying to heal her body, Alexa wrote and published "The Simple Gluten-Free Vegan Cookbook".
Alexa became one of the first adopters to stream live on Periscope. She started a show called "Morning Motivation with Alexa" which attracted thousands of viewers. Her authenticity led her to growing a large following who coined themselves, the 'Good Vibe Tribe'.
The first WEX took place at the Broward Convention Center in October of 2016 attracting over 2,000 attendees.
Moving fear aside, Alexa booked the Washington D.C. Convention Center to host the 2nd Women Empower Expo with the mission to create real change for women. The first WEX D.C. attracted over 2,500 people in attendance.

She shared her message on the TEDx stage, was hired to speak at a number of corporations including the Taco Bell Headquarters for their annual scholarship summit for young dreamers, and was interviewed on DCW50, CBS, WPTV, and the CW.
