Alex found SheJumps through social media in 2010 and has been “Jumping” ever since! Born and raised in the Hudson River Valley, the Catskill Mountains were Alex’s backyard and ultimately her playground. At a very young age her parents instilled in her a love of nature and adventure. They taught Alex how to ski as soon as she could walk, so of course her first love and true passion is skiing. (She definitely has a powder addiction and is a bit of a gear junkie too!) When the snow melts, Alex loves to get out on the trails and go hiking or mountain biking with her equally adventurous husband. If she’s not in the mountains then you’ll find her on the water SUP’ing, fishing, and practicing SUP Yoga. No matter the season this ripping chick will be out there, getting after it!. (She’s easy to spot, she’s always sporting a Girafficorn and a huge smile!)

“I’m very excited about the opportunity to organize events and to spread the reach of SheJumps in the Northeast! I was fortunate enough to have a lot of encouragement to get outside and participate in outdoor sports when I was younger and I would love to give that back. SheJumps is the perfect platform for that. This amazing community has helped me find new passions, like SUP and SUP Yoga, and I can’t wait to help other women discover something new. I hope to help inspire the next generation of rad lady shredders, the way that the jumpers have been a source of inspiration for me. I can’t wait to get out there and spread the stoke of the Girafficorn Nation!”
