I am so excited about this conversation as I am welcoming one of my longtime lacrosse family BFF’s to the T&T mic, Alex Whitworth! Alex is a fellow George Mason University grad, entrepreneur, and mom of 5! Alex grew up in Norther Virginia, went to college there, got married and started a family there, and thought she might spend the rest of her life there, until opportunity arose to make a major move to the US Virgin Island, St. Croix. This is a massive move with a family and a business, but they said yes and took the chance. Alex and I chat about her journey living so far from home, adjusting her family and business, and the importance of relationships and how you treat people- above all else. It’s great to hear how neighbors become friends that become family and your biggest supporters of your business. This is a great convo on inspiration if you are thinking of taking a chance- do it! Trust that if you show with the right energy your surroundings will provide for you in return and it just might be the greatest decision of your life.

Taking a chance! Relationships are everything, care about people and they will care about you. The non-plan plan, but also doing research. Neighbors, friends, family. Jumping out of your comfort zone. Perspective and adjusting to your environment. All the kids, dogs, and planners. Cookies. Community. Consciousness.

Alex Whitworth was born and raised in Northern Virginia, but is currently living her Caribbean dream on the island of St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands with her family. She grew up with a big family and a love of all sports. She played DI lacrosse at George Mason University, which she believes helped shape who she is not only as a hard-working businesswoman, but also as a mother to five young children.
While staying home with her first two children, she started a hobby of decorating cookies. Thanks to word of mouth and social media, this quickly turned in to a legit business, The Cookie Momster Kitchen, LLC. Today she has a location in Bristow, VA as well as St. Croix, USVI.
