Meet our Nurse Practitioner and Clinic Owner: Alexandra
Alexandra was born and raised on a farm just south of Edmonton near Camrose Alberta. She pursued her Nursing Degree at the University of Lethbridge Alberta, graduating in December 2010. Upon graduation Alexandra and her husband Ronny decided to make the move to Saskatchewan and call Yorkton their home. She worked at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre as a Registered Nurse mostly in Emergency, ICU, Obstetrics, with experience also in Endoscopy and Surgery.
In January of 2016, Alexandra was accepted to the University of Saskatchewan Masters of Nursing Nurse Practitioner program, and graduated on June 2nd 2019. She has worked as a Nurse Practitioner for the Athabasca Health Authority in Black Lake Saskatchewan since June 2019 and also worked at the Downton Clinic in Yorkton from July 2019-March 2020. In September 2020 she pursued an interest in cosmetic injections and completed The Botox and The Filler courses based out of Kelowna BC, with didactic lectures and hands on clinical training. Alexandra will also complete the Hospitalized Adult and Acute Care program from the University of Toronto in April 2021.
Alexandra is a mom of 3 children (ages 8, 6 &4) she loves the outdoors and enjoys travelling with her family throughout Canada, Europe and South America. Their favourite place thus far is Costa Rica, although Switzerland and Montreal hold a special place in their hearts with Alexandra’s family being from Montreal and her Husband Ronny moving from Switzerland when he was a child. They are dreaming of all their travel plans once the world is safe once again.
“I have always envisioned a clinic where patients could ultimately experience the most valuable appointment, every time they walk through the doors. My experience up north has taught me that it is possible. To have patients come in with their concerns and have the freedom to explore each of them in detail. Follow that with a thorough exam and ample time to form a treatment plan with the patient that best suits their needs. Before concluding, perform any lab draws or procedures that may be needed in that same appointment, decreasing the need for patients to go to multiple locations or worry about more missed time from work, schooling, or home needs. Essentially, a one stop shop.” – Alexandra Galli
