Alexandra never really had the chance to show her stuff at a major meet (e.g., she just missed the 1998 European team, instead being the alternate). As luck would then have it, a sudden bout of appendicitis cut Alexandra's career short. What would normally have been a routine operation, was, for Alexandra, the end of her gymnastics career. During the operation to remove her appendix, a careless nurse spilled boiling water into her open wound. The result was severe and she was never able to return to gymnastics.
Although no longer able to train, Alexandra opted to remain in Deva to continue her high school studies. She began studying to become a coach, but later changed career paths. She was a sports reporter/editor for a Romanian newspaper, and she covered the 2000 Romanian International.
