Meet Dr. Alexandria Rosa
Some people think I am a little crazy. Here I am, a doctorally prepared nurse, teaching nursing students, raising three children, happily in a relationship with my high school sweetheart, and starting a business during the pandemic.
What possessed me to take on this…now? A heartfelt calling to help others in the caring professions avoid falling into the same hole I did. So I found the right support (because you can’t do it alone), pushed up my sleeves and created SPICE.
Here is the back story:
I have been in healthcare for almost 20 years and was working as a nurse educator and at the bedside in various ICU’s as a travel nurse while I finished my doctoral degree in nursing.
During those 20 years, I have also had three children, maintained a healthy, supportive marriage with my high school sweetheart, and served as my dad’s primary caregiver before he died.
So there I was, with two little ones, a third child on the way, attending school full-time, coping with the stress and sorrow of my father’s illness and death, AND trying to keep myself and my family sane and on schedule.
Whether we are teachers, healthcare providers, or in social services, most of us hit our breaking point before being able to make changes. For me, it was the birth of my third child. I was experiencing severe heart failure, and if I wanted to stick around to see my kids grow up, I had to face that I was:
- 70 pounds overweight
- Taking multiple medications
- Fighting depression and anxiety every day
So I began to shift my perspective and my life. I developed a lot of processes and strategic systems over the years. I won’t say it was super easy. I had a lot to learn—all of which I can now share—and have moved through to the other side where life is pretty wonderful.
I know how to get the results I am looking for, can achieve balance, stay healthy and strong, and enjoy my family and clients. And now, I want to help you find that healthy balance too.
Life is never perfect. But it can be pretty free of stress and anxiety—even for those of us in the caring professions. More productive and meaningful. It can energize and inspire, fill your heart with love and joy, and make you happy to wake up every day.
