Alex Paine, has been competing consistently over the past three years. Alex says that she truly enjoys fitness and loves being on stage! As a full-time graduate student, part-time college instructor, and owner of her own business - Xela's Customs LLC (custom competition suits)- her schedule is pretty packed, but she still finds time to hit the gym! Alex says, "being busy keeps me motivated and helps me to better achieve my goals. With my packed schedule I have to be consistent with my routines and really pick out which goals are truly worth pursing...then I just hit the ground running!" Alex's current ambitions include completing her Ph.D. in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology at the University of Colorado Boulder, growing her business, and making her Ms. Bikini Universe Pro debut! Alex will be competing in the Ms.Bikini Pro and Model America divisions.
