About Alexa Carlin

At the age of 21, Alexa Carlin was given a 1% chance to live after getting sepsis. Later on, she was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Instead of giving up, she created her own C.O.M.E.B.A.C.K. story and today is a successful public speaker, TV personality, author, and founder & CEO of Women Empower X (WEX).

From a medical coma and 1% chance to live to “Most Powerful Woman”, Alexa details her journey in her memoir, Adaptable: How to Lead with Curiosity, Pivot with Purpose, and Thrive through Change.

During our live interview with Alexa, she shared vulnerable stories from her memoir, Adaptable, hoping to empower women to stand up while getting knocked down, so they can come back and achieve their dreams.


"Life’s obstacles offer two distinct directions: They can push you backward or fuel you forward. The choice is up to you."

- Alexa Carlin
