About Alexandra

Alexandra was getting serious SOS signals from her body. When it dawned on her that food was the missing piece of the puzzle in helping her improve her health, she decided to see a registered dietitian nutritionist. After her experience, she realized she wanted to make a career out of helping others with their health so she pursued her master’s in nutrition and earned a registered dietitian nutritionist credential. Before joining the team at Culina Health, Alexandra was an inpatient dietitian at Bellevue Hospital, where she worked in general medicine, GI disorders, diabetes, and nutrition and mental health.
