Cohen's full first name is Alexandra Pauline. She switched to skating at age 7 after starting with gymnastics. She
has also won various gymnastics awards. Cohen won the silver medal at US Nationals in her first senior year. She
takes part in choreographing her programs. She admires figure skaters Scott Hamilton and Kurt Browning.
Cohen's long term goals include working as a fashion designer. Until now, she has designed some of her practice
dresses with the help of her mother and her costume designer Mare Talbott. Her mother Galina emigrated from
the Ukraine to the United States. Her younger sister Natasha is a pianist. Cohen is practising the quadruple
Salchow and plans to attempt it in competition. Cohen switched coaches in summer 2002, leaving long-time
coach John Nicks to join Tatiana Tarasova's group.
