Alejandra Gonzalez is from Denison, Iowa. She got my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing and Bachelor's of Science in Psychology from the University of Iowa. Her research interest is health in sexual and gender minority populations. Gonzalez has a limited clinical background but do currently work at a retirement center in Iowa City as a nurse. She choose to get her PhD at the University of Iowa because she had a great experience doing research as undergraduate. Gonzalez knew she would have the support and a great adviser who would help her achieve some of her research goals. She hasn't decided what she'll be doing after the completion of the PhD program, but is leaning toward being a nurse scientist in a hospital.
