Alexandra (Alex) Mesick

Giving. Passionate. Insightful.

Current Employer & Job Title: The University of Vermont Health Network Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital and Alice Hyde Medical Center- Director of Grant Writing

Age: 26 | Hometown: Chazy | Education:

Master of Public Health (MPH) from The University of Vermont (UVM) and Bachelor of Science, Health and Human Sciences from Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (ACPHS)

Alex has always had a strong community involvement and love for helping others. She knew by Middle School she wanted to be in the medical field. Alex started as a volunteer B-EMT with the Chazy Fire Department. Then, while pursuing a degree as a Physician Assistant (PA), that just didn’t seem to be the right fit. She was then steered to her current Public Health path and she couldn’t be happier with the work she’s doing. She also shares her love of music with the community playing in two local groups -- The Straw Hatters and Synchronized Saxs.

How does company culture impact you and what do you do to contribute to it?

No matter who you meet, employees at CVPH and AHMC always have a smile on their face and are saying hello. It creates a culture of acceptance and enthusiasm for the work we do. To contribute, I try to be as helpful I can to patients and their families, whether that be getting a family member to their loved one’s room or showing them where they can get food in the cafeteria.

Who do you look up to for inspiration or mentorship?

In the short time he has been my supervisor, Shawn Rogers has given me the utmost inspiration when it comes to my career goals. As a leader, he shows me how to achieve greatness in my work while also mentoring me on how to set my career goals for the future. I have never met a more caring and selfless supervisor.

What strategies do you use to approach the day?

I believe that you should start every day as a new day, leaving behind all of yesterday’s heart aches, whether that be at work or home, and striving to do your best in this moment. This allows me to have more clarity and achieve what I set out to do.

What important lesson have you learned in your career?

Patience is key. It took me a long time to find what I am truly passionate about. Now that I am in a career where my passions are thriving, I am extremely grateful to have had those past work experiences.
