Alex has been the coach of the winning couples Jeremy Hansen & Alicia Frechette, Stephanie & Andy Langlois, Kelly & Dan Mead, and Scott Knaffla & Patty Barton of the Mirror Ball Trophy and Jill & Zach Leonard of the Fan Favorite Trophy! She has also had the pleasure of coaching Mike & Kay Angeli, Christine Pesola & Joe Heck, and Deborah & Stephen Wissler.

She has been involved in dance since she was three, dabbling in many styles and owns her own company, UP Ballroom Dance & Fitness in Marquette. Alex has choreographed and directed community dance performances, taught with New Attitudes Dance Studio, and trained many couples in ballroom dance over the past twelve years in the U.P. and looks forward to more.
