Hi! I'm Alex! I love mountains, tacos, a cold beer, and dogs. I live for pre-work dawn patrols on Mt Hood and running ridgeline trails. If I'm not working as a dietitian, you can find me outside on the trails, on top of a mountain, or in the forest. I am a firm believer that a good quality of life, high energy, and excellent performance is directly linked to the foods you eat. I am passionate about helping individuals meet their goals and exceed what they think is possible through the use of practical and wholesome nutrition.
Alex was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. She attended Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, where she graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Nutrition. She then attended The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, where she completed her dietetic internship and earned her Masters of Science degree in Clinical Nutrition.
After graduation, she followed her dream of moving "West" and accepted a job in Bellingham, Washington as the corporate dietitian for a local supermarket chain. It was in Bellingham where she fell in love with the North Cascades and all they had to offer - skiing, climbing, trail running, and fastpacking. A year later, she and her husband Matt moved to Portland, Oregon, where Alex currently works for Evolution Healthcare and Fitness as their dietitian, specializing in sports nutrition. She offers nutrition consultation to local endurance athletes to help them improve their performance and reach their goals.
When Alex isn't in the office, she spends her time playing in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest with her husband. You can find her training for an ultramarathon, climbing ice on volcano headwalls, skiing down couloirs, or rock climbing on some of the North Cascade's finest granite. Her and Matt are passionate "Weekend Warriors," who feel strongly about balancing work with play, and utilizing their limited free time (before work, after work, Saturday, and Sunday) to chase their mountain dreams.
