About Alex

untitled-design
I wear a lot of hats, but they can all be summed up with one title: storyteller. I tell others’ stories through my TV hosting, share my story through public speaking, and encourage women to tell their best and truest story through my media movement and empowered community, #Empowerista. Los Angeles Business Journal recently discovered #Empowerista's purposeful work and included me on their 20 in their Twenties list of successful entrepreneurs (thank you!). 
 

Sometimes my TV hosting work is like playing real life dress up. I've hosted the Miss USA telecast, E! News Now, ABC red carpets and VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live. My inner 5-year-old pinches herself!

Some days I'm a girly girl who adores makeup and heels, and other days I refuse to change out of my Lululemons and rock the #nomakeup look!

You can find me weekdays anchoring the TV and radio show Business Rockstars, where I interview CEOs, founders, disruptors & influencers, and share the best entrepreneurial advice.

I also have a weekly video series collaboration with Focus Magazine, where I interview empowered, successful and purposeful women breaking barriers in a variety of fields. And we connect these women to each other, to facilitate support and collaborations, through our event series benefiting (and co-hosted with) the charity GirlTalk Network.

My interest in being in the entertainment industry began when I would quote the movie Annie as a 3-year-old, grew when I became a Kohl’s model at age 9, and was solidified when I was Miss Wisconsin USA and a local TV intern my senior year at the University of Wisconsin. From there, I would start a whirlwind journey in local TV. My first full-time job was at the NBC affiliate in Rockford, IL as a morning news anchor (translation for anchor/reporter/producer/editor/shooter/do-everything person).

I then became a talk show host in Oklahoma City and a TV host for, Eye Opener, a nationally syndicated morning show based in Dallas. I’ve been an Angeleno since the summer of 2014 and can now be seen on TV shows, red carpets, various digital platforms or in downward dog at a LA yoga studio. Yes, I love yoga…. and country music, craft beer, movies, self-help books, coffee and boating at my family’s lake home in Wisconsin.

Work With Alex

1

Host

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.....

Speaker

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.....

Ambassador

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.....

Contributor

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.....

Mentor

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.....

Actress

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).....
