Alexander got her acting start on two short-lived series: the medical drama Presidio Med and ABC’s twenty-something drama Wasteland. She achieved widespread media attention and critical praise when she appeared on the fourth season of Dawson’s Creek as Gretchen Witter, the sister of Pacey Witter, and dating the title character, as well as in an episode of the short-lived Fox comedy series Greg the Bunny, in which she played the role of a lesbian TV Guide reporter and shared an onscreen kiss with Sarah Silverman.
