Sandra Alexander, PA-C
Founder of Collegial Behavioral Health

Sandra earned her Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Campbell University in Buies Creek, North Carolina, and pursued a previous career in Forensic Drug Chemistry and Toxicology. After working in crime laboratories in the Southeast, she became a consultant to forensic laboratories throughout the U.S. and Canada. Throughout her career, she spent hours processing illicit drug labs and overdose crime scenes, and she felt the place where she could make the most difference was in medicine, instead of law enforcement.

Sandra returned to Campbell University and earned her Master of Physician Assistant Practice degree, specializing in psychiatry and addiction medicine. She molded her practice skills with previous experience at Southlight Healthcare, Changes by Choice, Morse Clinics of Chatham, Vance and Johnston Recovery Services, and Carolina Partners in Mental HealthCare. Sandra is a member of the AAPA, the NCAPA, the NCAPA Health Committee (Chair of Committee 2015-2016), and is a consultant for the NC Physicians Health Program.

As Founder of the Collegial Behavioral Health team, she leads in unity for your better life.

Sandra is the author or expert source of several professional magazine articles, including:
Help Wanted - PA's Needed For Opioid Epidemic
PA Way to Effective Patient Recovery
