Member Spotlight: Alexa Ross
Born an Army brat, Alexa lived in Yokohama, Virginia, Toul (France), Frankfurt and Chicagoland, growing up with two sisters. After college in Appleton, Wisconsin, it was San Francisco, Philadelphia, New York, Daytona Beach and ultimately Nelsonville. In the ’70’s she last traveled extensively, visiting North Africa, Holland, Spain, Ireland and Greece, picking grapes in France and wild oats in England. After three months in India, she returned to Europe overland just before the fall of Afghanistan.
In 1982 while promoting a one-woman show, she met theatre owner Jack Ross in New York. Together they ran an acting school and wrote “Mice in the Theatre”, a comedy about off-Broadway. Now widowed, she is busy gardening, videotaping for Public Access TV, going through 13,000 photos from her trip, being green and enjoying her five cats. She looks forward to another trip to Asia soon.
