Alexa Carlin is a nationally renowned public speaker, Founder of the Women Empower Expo (WEX), and Creator of BeAPublicSpeaker.com. Alexa Co-Founded the Women Empower Expo in 2016 after noticing a need for a national event to connect like-minded women who are passionate about making a difference in the world. In January 2017, Alexa became the sole owner of WEX and was named one of fifteen “Top Young Professionals To Watch” by Meetings & Conventions Magazine landing the cover story after just hosting one event.

Alexa’s drive to make a difference was inspired after a near-death experience that happened during her senior year at the University of Florida in 2013 leaving her with a 1% chance of living. This experience inspired Alexa to share her story vulnerably to audiences all over the world through public speaking. Her authentic message of resilience and empowerment has led her to grow an engaged following of over 50,000 people on social media.

Alexa has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey Network and in The Huffington Post, Glamour Magazine, Mashable, Gold Coast Magazine, and The Sun-Sentinel among others. Alexa’s mission with the Women Empower Expo is to create events in select cities in North America (to start) to foster a community of women who collaborate versus compete and feel empowered to create a positive change in the world.

“In order to empower others, you must first empower yourself.” -Alexa Carlin
