Alexandra "Allie" Williams, MD
Medical School: Vanderbilt University
College: Washington University
Hometown: Peoria, Arizona and Boxford, Massachusetts
Allie grew up in both the Southwest and on the East Coast, before splitting the difference and heading out to the Midwest for college. She worked as a research assistant and an organ transplant preservationist here at Vanderbilt after college, met her husband, and loved Nashville so much she just couldn’t leave. She stayed for medical school, a research year-out, and is now thrilled to be staying here for residency. She feels that Nashville really is home, and the Vanderbilt community is unparalleled. Allie has had a decade-long interest in the heart and hopes to pursue fellowship in peds cardiology after residency. Outside of medicine, Allie and her husband became parents during the pandemic and have loved getting to be home so much with their son. They spend lots of time outdoors as a family with their energetic and often too smart Golden Retriever/Collie mix, Cade. Allie also loves to make new recipes to cook and bake, watch movies, and drink any and every kind of tea in existence. She is ecstatic to continue her journey at Vanderbilt as part of such a supportive, genuine, and fun pediatrics family.
