Alexandra Jenkins has been playing with LTS since 2013. She is passionate about empowering others to be “that one person” that is takes to make a different for people (especially children) who are at-risk, disabled, underprivileged, or otherwise in need. She tries to go the extra step to help others and to find or create ways to prevent judgement and hatred and to spread love and kindness
Why she is an LTS Advisory Board Member?
“Being an All-Star for LTS would allow me to work with other like-minded professionals to share ideas, raise money, and spread awareness. The difference in the rivalries, staff, and company between LTS and other leagues immediately stood out to me and I am constantly trying to recruit others to LTS. I have been volunteering since I was a child. I always wanted to help a friend in need, asking teachers to protect friends being bullied, and asking myself what more I can do.”
What do you do for a living: I am an attorney and represent abused and neglected children in Cook County in Child Protection Court.
Favorite weekend activity: Anything outdoors! From swimming & boating in the summer to snowmobiling and ice fishing in the winter!
Favorite way to stay active: Love heading to Montrose Harbor for yoga, running, walking or biking! Love playing volleyball year around with LTS too!

If you could be a crayon color, what color would you be: I’d be green! It’s used in pretty much every drawing and it has lots of fun shades. Also, it comes in every box, even the tiny ones.
If you could have a super power, what would it be: To know about tragedy and stop it from happening! Oh, and to live forever!
What’s the one thing you can’t live without: The sun! Dreary Days are tough! I love sun even if the temps are super low and the wind is crazy. If it’s sunny, I’m happy!
