Alex was born and raised in Bethalto, IL. She graduated from Civic Memorial High School and attended the University of Missouri in Columbia for one year. While there, she became interested in physical therapy after attending a football game and seeing the involvement of the physical therapists with athletes. She then was accepted into the Physical Therapist Assistant Program at Southwestern Illinois College in Belleville, IL. During the program, she enjoyed a clinical rotation at Alton Physical Therapy. After graduating from the program, she was excited to become a member fo the APT family shortly thereafter.
Alex loves working in the outpatient setting, due to the great variety of patients. She especially loves working with runners, since running is a big part of her life, having completed 4 marathons, 12 half marathons, and 3 triathlons.
