Alex has finally fulfilled her lifelong dream of becoming a nurse practitioner. After obtaining experience in cardiac nursing, she decided to start a career in primary care where she feels she can have more say in her patient’s overall physical and emotional health. She values creating relationships with a trusting foundation and treating patients like she would treat her family. She strives to make decisions together with her patients by placing an emphasis on education to empower them to stay healthy and to create a plan that works best for them. In her free time, Alex enjoys cooking, exercising, boating, spending time with her friends and family, and playing with her new puppy.
