About Alex


Alex Wehrley is a confidence and personal brand expert for millennial women. She is the founder of #Empowerista, TV host of Business Rockstars and one of Los Angeles Business Times 20 in their 20s.

#Empowerista helps women confidently advance in their careers through its empowering community and educational content.

Alex has hosted for the Miss USA telecast, E! News Now, live ABC red carpet shows, FOX and more. 

After her year as Miss Wisconsin USA 2009, she kicked off her career as a morning news anchor for the NBC affiliate in Rockford, IL. She worked as a TV host in Oklahoma City and Dallas, before moving to Los Angeles, where she currently lives.

None of the above would have been possible without the mentorship of strong female leaders. As a young girl, Alex was naturally shy and introverted. Thanks to her business savvy mother and older sister who helped her discover her unique voice and vision, Alex grew into the leader she was capable of becoming.


For women to be equally valued and influential as men

in the workplace and entire world.


 Women are just as competent as men, but we unfortunately fall short in an equally important category for success - confidence. The confidence gap is one of the main reasons there are less women in leadership positions. This is a disservice to women and the companies they work for, as companies with thriving female leaders see increased profitability.

The solution is twofold:

Build her confidence AND utilize her strengths in the workplace.


The two go hand-in-hand...

Nothing builds confidence more than action. When a woman knows who she is and expresses it... When she discovers her strengths and uses them… When she acknowledges her doubt but moves forward anyway… She builds her confidence.


It starts with her…


-Knowing who she is

-Discovering her strengths

-Having confidence in her capabilities

-Effectively communicating all of the above


It continues with us...


-Providing her with mentorship

-Giving her the tools to advance

-Recognizing her value in the workplace

-Encouraging her to step up and lead

•  •  •

It takes a community to build her confidence, and it’s the community that benefits, when her confidence is built.


Work With Alex



What I love most about TV hosting is starting important conversations and highlighting impactful people -- all while making people laugh and smile. Whether I'm anchoring the morning news, reporting on the red carpet or sitting on a talk show panel, I like to bring an authentic playfulness, credible wisdom and empowered confidence to my stories.....



Telling others' stories is fun, but I've got a story to share too! Through my "7-Steps to Empower" programs, I help individuals within organizations and companies gain the confidence, presentation and networking skills I've found necessary to have an empowered career.....



Does your brand empower women? Let's collaborate! I promote brands related to female empowerment on my social media (with nearly 40,000 followers combined), blog or podcast (coming soon). With my TV hosting & acting background, I can also speak on behalf of brands at live events, in commercials & online.....



I love to share my female empowerment expertise with various media platforms. I've done this through being a guest panelist, blogger and vlogger. The next time Jennifer Lawrence speaks up against the Hollywood pay gap, Ariana Grande calls out a body-shaming bully or #ThxBirthControl is trending, I'm your girl to offer intelligent, yet fun, commentary.....



My career wouldn't be where it is today without my mentors! I want to provide the same help to others starting a new endeavor. I work with ladies, both one-on-one and in group settings, who are launching a new career, business or creative project.....



I've found laughter is the best way to get people to listen. That's why I have a sweet spot for comedy. I frequently write and perform in sketches, and I'm always continuing my training through improv classes (UCB & iO) and scripted comedy classes (Warner Loughlin Studios).....
