THE STORY:

Hi Everyone!  My name is Alexis Underwood and I'm a professional business woman and professional long distance open water swimmer.

I've always loved the water!  As a toddler, I would make my mom use a stopwatch to time how long I could float in the bathtub.  Years of dedicated pool training paid off as I proudly represented the University of Pennsylvania in NCAA division 1 swimming.  After a few years off, I got my first taste of open water through a half ironman relay team with work colleagues.  I was immediately hooked!  Over the last 4 years I have focused exclusively for open water races, and have enjoyed increasing success in national and international competitions.

I also have a strong passion for business.  I currently run one of the largest accounts at Georgia Pacific and previously worked in roles involving strategy, M&A, pricing, analytics and innovation.  I've found that the more intense my work gets, the harder I need to train to keep some balance in my life!

One of my favorite parts about becoming a professional open water swimmer is getting more engaged with various communities.  One of the causes that I’m most passionate about is homelessness.  I have devoted energy to it through soup kitchens, volunteer consulting, and home building.  I love that I'm going to battle homelessness with Habitat for Humanity by doing the thing I love the most.
