Alexandra struggled for years with digestive issues and autoimmune disorders. According to her doctors, the solution was multiple rounds of antibiotics, steroids, and medications with unpronounceable names. She often heard the words, “there’s nothing else we can do for you.”

So, frustrated with deadends, she started to look more closely at her lifestyle habits. Alexandra realized that along with treating her symptoms with medications, she could enhance healing her body through food. She became fascinated with nutrition science and how it can be used as a tool to improve our physical and mental wellbeing, especially for complex, chronic medical conditions. Alexandra decided to take her own experiences and knowledge to help others discover healing through food, helping them achieve personalized, sustainable goals to improve their health and happiness. 
 
Alexandra holds a Master’s degree in Clinical Nutrition and Dietetics from New York University, completed her clinical training at Montefiore New Rochelle Hospital, and worked as a clinical inpatient dietitian at Bellevue Hospital. In addition to her work in private practice, Alexandra conducts nutrition research and is currently focusing on her study, Health-related Quality of Life Among US Adults With Food Allergies.
 
She specializes in disease prevention, nutrition and mental health, GI disorders, pre-diabetes and diabetes, hormone imbalances, and autoimmune disease. 
 
Alexandra was born and raised in New York City and is fluent in Russian and French. In her spare time, she enjoys drawing, pottery, hiking, trying new recipes in the kitchen and researching adoption websites for her future puppy.
