​​​​​About CPR Champion

Recognizing the importance of effective, high-quality CPR inspired Alexa Champion Marks to become a certified CPR instructor. Initially, she taught for six years with the Loudoun County Virginia Medical Reserve Corps, Alexa then proceeded to begin CPR Champion, Living Health LLC, an insured, on-site, mobile, on-demand, full-service CPR/AED/First Aid training firm.

Alexa's healthcare and medical experience includes work as an ER RN, a family practice RN manager, and currently as an RN wellness educator and a home health RN. Before earning her Bachelor's of Science in Nursing (BSN) & Registered Nurse (RN) licensure, she worked as a certified personal trainer and ran her own outdoor bootcamp & personal training company, Jumpstart Fitness LLC, based out of Leesburg, VA, from 2004-2007. 

Alexa holds a BSN from Shenandoah University and a BA in English from the University of Maryland at College Park. She is an RN in the District of Columbia as well as in Virginia and Maryland with a compact state license.  Alexa is currently a graduate student in a Master of Science in Family Nurse Practitioner program at University of South Alabama.
