"We Are the Force"
Alexia has been interested in fantasy SciFi fiction most of her life. She loves the opportunity to dress up, whether that be for medieval fairs, Harry Potter fan trips or to make a party more fun. She has written articles and a fantasy fiction teen novel.
Being raised by a Greek Orthodox priest has given her a deep appreciation for the Eastern Orthodox church. She loves her faith and how beautiful it is. She has studied the works of John Maxwell and other great leaders and uses what she has learned to help better her life as well as others. She keeps herself growing and learning everyday.
Alexia strives to make an impact on people in a positive way. She hopes that she is able to serve others just as Christ has served us. God has blessed Alexia with a wonderful husband Juan and two beautiful boys Elijah and Sebastián. All three take her on some amazing adventures.
