Alexa was born into a musical family. Being immersed in this environment ignited a love for singing from a very early age. She began singing in the St. John the Baptist Russian Orthodox Cathedral choir at the age of 11. While pursuing her undergraduate degree at Marywood University in Scranton, PA, she was a member of both the University Campus Choir, as well as the Marywood University Chamber Singers, all under the direction of Dr. Rick Hoffenberg. Alexa is currently working towards earning her MBA. She continues to sing in her parish choir, as well as to actively participate in various Orthodox music conferences and workshops.
