Soon after the Del Valle fight, Alcorn announced her retirement from boxing on February 5, 2004, citing the stress that her boxing career placed on her children. saying "After eight years of training, I know I'll feel the effects of walking away, but I've seen fighters stay in too long, and I've seen the effect it has on their mind and body. By going out on top, the worst I'll be is a former 3-time World Champion. Every good thing has to come to an end." She says she will continue her work with the Fresno State women's basketball team and her fitness training business.

Alcorn and her family appeared on the October 9, 2006 episode of the U.S. version of Wife Swap.
