Alex began her skating career when her mother introduced her to the ice at just 2 years old. As an amateur skater, she became a USFSA double gold medalist at the young age of 14.

Knowing that performing was her passion, she quickly made the change over to professional figure skating and began touring for traveling shows around the world. Most recently, Alex has worked as a soloist for Nancy Kerrigan’s “Halloween On Ice”. Prior to that, Alex worked for Feld Entertainment and Disney On Ice in “100 Years of Disney Magic” as well as playing the role of  “Martha” in Disney’s “High School Musical : The Ice Tour” on their international cast.

After touring to such places as South America, Asia, Australia, Europe, Scandinavia, Mexico; Alex began skating as a principal soloist on board Royal Caribbean Cruise ships, continuing to travel the world to Dubai, Egypt, Jordan, South Korea, and Japan (to name a few).

Unfortunately whilst on board the cruise ships, Alex suffered a stroke and immediately had emergency heart surgery.

Three weeks later, she was back on the ice and is now the current winner of Holland’s “Dancing On Ice”.  Along with her celebrity partner, DJ Tony Wycycinski, she went on to win the entire TV series just three months to the day of her stroke.
