When asked the question, "Why Team IMPACT?" Alexa said:
I could not be more excited to join the Team IMPACT staff! It has been my dream to work for an organization that uses the power of sport to transform lives because of the impact being a student-athlete has had on me personally and professionally. Having the opportunity to positively change children’s, families, and student-athletes lives, all while forming a community of passionate volunteers, donors, and partners across the nation is truly a special experience that I wanted to be a part of. The Team IMPACT mission and committed staff inspire me every day, and I am looking forward to being a part of the organization’s huge growth these next couple of years!
