“Alex is an incredible speaker. She skillfully blends her ongoing work in higher education, mental health, fitness and holistic wellness. She speaks and coaches about the importance of the mind-body connection, and habit formation. She emphasizes nutrition and movement instead of diet and exercise; and holistic wellness (especially during a time of uncertainty, working from home, and major life transitions). She does all this in a funny and relatable way. I have personally benefited tremendously as a client of hers during the COVID-19 pandemic. I cannot recommend Alex enough as a wellness consultant, coach and speaker! ”

“Just truly thank you. You reached out to me at a time when I was so down on myself and thought that I was going to be stuck in this shitty diet binge shame spiral forever. You showed me that radical self love, belief, boundaries and hard work were truly worth it.”
