              Krista

              Patient Care Coordinator

              Hello, I’m Krista Alexander and I am the patient care coordinator here at WITH. My son had been receiving speech therapy services with Kenda while he was in preschool, and we were blown away to see him come out of his shell once he learned how to better express himself through speech. I joined the WITH team in 2022 after working in EMS for 13 years, and I love it here! In my spare time, I love being outside with my family and our dog, camping, spending time on the water, and gardening. And anything hockey during the winter months.

              Happy Goldendoodle

              Hi, I’m Bauer! Ms. Kenda’s hockey-loving family named me this in the middle of 2022 when I joined her at WITH. I am a happy Goldendoodle who loves all people and helps with therapy sessions!

              Did you know that interacting with animals like me can help reduce anxiety and depression while improving motivation, engagement, security, and emotional support during therapy sessions?

              I’m the perfect addition to these sessions because I love hanging out with people and helping them feel calmer and more confident. I understand that therapy sessions can be challenging, but I have a special bond with my WITH family, and I help to make learning playful and enjoyable!
