Alexa’s biggest accomplishment as an athlete came with her gold medals in track and bowling. She has also competed in golf, skiing and basketball. She is most appreciative of the friends she has made through competing and for the opportunity to learn new things.

 

When she is not training, Alexa enjoys spending time with her friends and family and focusing on her school work. In the future, Alexa hopes to become a special education teacher and a coach for Special Olympics.
