She received her Registered Nurse Diploma from St. Vincent’s School of Nursing, BS in Nursing from the University of Bridgeport and an MS in Biology with a certificate in Clinical Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport. Alexandra was a former Associate Professor at the University of Bridgeport in the Masters of Science Program in Biology and Clinical Nutrition. Alexandra also achieved a Statement of Proficiency in Practical Herbal Therapy from the Australian College of Phytotherapy. She was the founder and owner of Focus Nutrition in Fairfield for over thirty years where she derived great pleasure in assisting her patients with their health and nutritional needs. She lectured throughout the United States on drug induced nutritional deficiencies and also lectured at nutritional seminars.

Alexandra leaves behind a wealth of relatives and friends, all who were special to her. Her husband and family would also like to thank Pastor Mark and the North Park Baptist Church for their love and support.

  6. Our hearts go out to the family of Alexandra. She truly was such an intuitive woman. We will all miss her gentle manner when guiding people on their nutritional path. I will remain forever grateful for her help with my grandson.
    We will truly miss her but will value every bit of advice she shared.
    Love and prayers to you Alexandra. May you have eternal peace.

  7. I will surely miss her care and concern toward me as a client and friend. We often joked about food as opposed to the health issues I might have. We often discussed new books read and we exchanged titles that one of us might be interested in. I will keep her smile and caring voice with me.
