Alexa is a professional wakeboarder turned TV host. She fell in love with watersports in small town, Spicer, Minnesota, where she competed on the Little Crow Water Ski Team and spent summers on the lake. At age 16, Alexa was diagnosed with Chronic, Myeloid Leukemia, a rare form of blood cancer, for which she received a grim prognosis. She battled the disease for many months amid uncertainty, until her blood counts and physical function began to stabilize. Alexa accredits dreaming about the water as what motivated her to keep fighting and got her through her darkest moments. The following year, she graduated high school early and moved to Orlando, Florida so she could be on the water year-round, and in 2011, she competed in her first pro wakeboard contest.
