Giving Patients Choices
Dr. Alexander was born in St. Louis, Missouri but grew up in Madison, Alabama where she stayed for college and earned a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Sciences at Oakwood University. During that time, she developed a passion for whole-person care, not just addressing the physical needs of patients but the spiritual as well. Keeping in line with this mission, she then obtained her medical degree at Loma Linda University in Loma Linda, CA.
She initially started medical school to become a pediatrician; however, the field of obstetrics and gynecology stole her heart. After her first year of medical school, she traveled to Chad, Africa, and shadowed an OBGYN. While there was a fluctuation of emotions from the joys of deliveries to more somber moments, one thing was for sure: she loved educating and being able to provide compassionate care to women. As she continued her medical school journey, she realized that everything she liked on each rotation pointed her back to becoming an OBGYN.
Dr. Alexander completed her OB/GYN residency here in Houston at UT Health Houston-McGovern Medical School where she developed clinical interests in providing education for preventative healthcare such as cervical cancer screening, obstetrics, contraception, and minimally invasive surgery. After learning of Texas Center for Health, joining the group was a no-brainer. She focuses on women of all ages and backgrounds and believes in the importance of individualizing the care plan for each patient.
Outside of work, Dr. Alexander enjoys international travel, pilates, HIIT classes, and spending time with friends, family and her precious dog CoCo.
