Originally from Chandler, Arizona, Alexa's entertainment debut began at the age of three when she discovered dancing. By five, she was already performing with a professional jazz troupe. But it wasn't until she was discovered by acclaimed acting coach, Jean Fowler, that the All-American girl turned her talents into a career. Following the advice of her mentor, Fowler, who also trained actresses Jennie Garth ("Beverly Hills, 90210") and Amy Davidson ("8 Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter"), Alexa moved to New York City to study at the prestigious Circle in the Square Theatre School. But it wasn't long until she returned to the west coast. Within months of arriving in Los Angeles, Alexa secured lead roles in four feature films and booked numerous memorable TV guest-starring spots including "Reno 911" and Lifetime Television's "Secret Lives" among several others. Her acting portfolio also includes a supporting role in the film "Crow:Wicked Prayer", sharing the screen with Dennis Hopper, Tara Reid and Edward Furlong.
Extremely down-to-earth and focused, Alexa's hardworking efforts relocated her to New York City with an ABC contract, playing the bad girl we all love to hate, "Babe Chandler" on "All My Children." Rubbing elbows daily with daytime TV icon, Susan Lucci, Alexa is enjoying the rise to soap stardom. The on-screen chemistry she shares with Emmy-winning co-star Jacob Young is simply sizzling and truly magnetizing, and with simultaneous cross-over appearances on ABC's "One Life To Live", "Babe" is quickly becoming a larger-than-life TV character.
Alexa enjoys spending free time with her family and friends, taking hip-hop dance classes and being the secret weapon of her agency's softball team. She currently resides in Manhattan.
