Spotlight on Board Member
Introducing: Anne Alexandrov, ANVC President-Elect



1. Where do you work? 
Professor of Nursing with a dual appointment as a Professor of Neurology at University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) in Memphis, and Chief Nurse Practitioner of the UTHSC Mobile Stroke Unit
2. What is your professional role?  I teach in the PhD program at UTHSC and work clinically as an adult-gerontology acute care nurse practitioner (AGACNP) on our mobile stroke unit (ambulance equipped with a CT) to diagnose and treat stroke in the field. I also work in as an emergency stroke nurse practitioner at our comprehensive stroke center hospital. I am the Principal Investigator for the ZODIAC multi-site clinical trial funded by the National Institutes of Health.
3. What are you reading?  I'm always reading scientific journals and scanning for papers that are pertinent to my hyperacute emergency-based practice, but I also enjoy science fiction novels...I read all the Outlander and Harry Potter series within days of each book coming out years back, and have read and maintain a library that includes numerous books on Arthurian legend, Merlin, and Druid lore...best escapism EVER!
4. Share an inspirational quote:  I have two quotes that I live by:
Quote One: "If you are not failing ten times more than you are succeeding, you are not taking enough risks. Creativity is more about productivity than it is about 'wild talent!'" (Robert Sutton)
Quote Two: "Our first responsibility as a leader is to create an attractive dream, to proclaim a destination, communicating it in detail to others who might be interested in joining our expedition." (Jim Collins)
