Born into a Coast Guard family, Alex learned a fondness for the ocean in her early years living along the coasts of Oregon and Florida. Her later growing up years were spent in Idaho, where she was surrounded by forested mountains. Longtime loves for the wildness and the ocean pointed her back toward the salt water and she now lives in sun-kissed Pensacola, Florida. Beyond the great outdoors, Alex has a talent for the field and was named to the Gulf South Conference All-Decade softball team while in college.
Alex throws incredible determination into all of her goals. She attended University of Florida earning a marine biology bachelor of science and is a Wilderness First Responder. She also holds certifications in First Aid/CPR and Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping, and has earned her 100 Ton Master Inland Captain’s license. More than anything, Alex is motivated by fun and adventure especially when it includes the water and remote locations.
Most recently, Alex traveled to Ireland and Scotland—two destinations known for their proximity to dramatic, stunning seascapes. Her adventures are typically water-motived—she is passionate about diving and has explored incredible locations in pursuit of great dive spots. Among the highlights: scuba diving with manta rays, sea turtles and among coral reefs in Belize, Honduras, and the Cayman Islands. During your sail with her, be sure to ask about participating in shark dives and her secret talent at aerial yoga!
