Alex and her husband Nate live in Washington, DC, where they are members of Capitol Hill Baptist Church. Alex was born in Honduras but emigrated to the US as a toddler. Her father joined the military shortly thereafter and this led to many years of moving around the country. Although she was raised in a Christian home, it wasn’t until college that she truly understood the Gospel and its transforming power and everyday implications. It was also in college when Alex saw her passion and desire to understand God’s word and to encourage women increase.
After graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in International Studies, Alex decided to move to the DC area and work for International Justice Mission (IJM). It was while working at IJM that she began pursuing an M.A. in Biblical Counseling at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. It is now a wonderful privilege for her to have the opportunity to counsel and walk alongside women and teens who are hurting. In addition to counseling others, Alex loves to read, travel, study different cultures and history, and spend time with family and friends.
