Alex is one of seven siblings born and raised in Jefferson Hills, PA. 4 of her siblings were diagnosed with various speech and language disorders. After seeing the positive impact that speech-language therapy had on her siblings and family, Alex decided to pursue a career as a Speech- Language Pathologist. In 2013 she graduated with a BS in Health Sciences from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA, and then in 2014 Alex received her MS in Speech-Language Pathology also from Duquesne University. Throughout college Alex volunteered at a pediatric outpatient clinic as well as a cleft-craniofacial center and completed externships at a pediatric outpatient clinic, nursing homes, day cares, and an outpatient clinic for children and adults.
Alex relocated to Florida in 2014 and began her professional career as a Speech-Language Pathologist. She has worked in pediatric outpatient clinics, preschools, public schools, private school, and charter schools all providing Alex the opportunity to work with children diagnosed with various disorders including Articulation and Phonological Disorders, Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Dysarthria, Cleft Lip and Palate, Fluency/Stuttering Disorders, Autism, and many others. Alex enjoys assisting children and their families who are diagnosed with a wide range of speech-language disorders to increase their communication skills like she experienced with her own siblings and family.
During her free time, Alex loves spending time with her husband, Jake, and her cat, Chimera. She also enjoys swimming, relaxing at the lake and beach, watching sunsets, camping, walking, photograpy, watching movies, and playing board and card games with friends and family.
