Alexandra James, assistant to Gabi Rose, has over 20 years’ experience in the travel and hospitality industry specializing in meeting and event planning. She decided that her "calling" was in weight loss after winning the weight battle herself, and losing 100 lbs.
Alexandra learned, through trial and error, that it is a complete lifestyle change, incorporating good nutrition and fitness, in order to maintain the weight loss.
Joining Gabi Rose was an easy decision after meeting Gabi Rose and Dr. Cohn-Gelwasser and learning how the center provides patients with the tools that are needed to succeed in making the change to a healthy lifestyle. Alexandra has planned and escorted groups from 16 to 900 people. Yet nothing has been more satisfying than helping people achieve their weight loss goals and change their life.
