Alex was a social butterfly that loved people. She loved spending time with her family, especially with her nieces and nephews. She loved her nails being painted, her favorite colors were pink and purple. Country music and animals were some of her favorite pastimes.

She along with her family moved to Eau Claire, Wi in 1999 where she started school at Robbins Elementary. She lived at home until 2003 when she then went to live at a home through LSS and made many friends including her friend Tricia Asp, who has since passed away. During this time, she had many illnesses and spent a lot of time at Luther Hospital and Mayo in Rochester, MN.

She moved to Clark County Rehabilitation health Center in 2010 where she thrived due to the care she received from the amazing staff. She was truly the princess of 3West.
