Alexa Canady was the first woman and first African American to become a Neurosurgeon in America. The daughter of a doctor and a teacher, she grew up outside of Lansing, Michigan with her brother. The two were the only African American students in their school. Despite the odds and obstacles in her way, Canady excelled academically. She attended University of Michigan medical school, interned at Yale University, and was a Neurosurgery resident at the University of Minnesota before becoming the Chief of Neurosurgery at the Children's Hospital Detroit, Michigan in 1987 at the age of 36.

She was recognized by her home state and admitted to the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame.
