Biography

Dr. Alexander received a bachelor’s degree from The Pennsylvania State University and a medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in Pittsburgh, Pa. She then went on to complete an internal medicine internship and residency at UPMC in Pittsburgh. She is board certified in internal medicine.

After residency, Dr. Alexander practiced as an internist in Pittsburgh for six years, before relocating to State College. Since 2012, she has volunteered locally with Centre Volunteers in Medicine.

“I enjoy outpatient internal medicine because it gives me the chance to get to know my patients. Many of them have interesting stories to tell, and I find myself learning new things every day,” says Dr. Alexander, when asked what motivates her as a physician.

In her spare time, Dr. Alexander enjoys running, hiking, skiing, and gardening. Her husband, Jake Alexander, MD, is a radiologist at Mount Nittany Medical Center, and the couple has three children.
