Alexa was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She attended the University of Southern California where she studied theater and earned her undergraduate degree in Neuroscience. She didn't realize her passion for medicine until after graduation, and she joined the Post-baccalaureate Premedical Program at USC soon after. Alexa continued her medical education at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine where she discovered her love for Pediatrics. She eventually left California to complete her pediatric residency at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, and she has loved Nashville! She discovered her passion for teaching during residency and developed an interest in medical education research. Following Chief year, Alexa plans to pursue a fellowship in Neonatology.

Outside of the hospital, Alexa enjoys spending time with her husband and dog, Millie. She enjoys hiking, riding her Peloton, and yoga. She loves trying new recipes and exploring the amazing restaurants in Nashville! Alexa is grateful and excited to be spending another year at Vanderbilt as Chief Resident.
