Quarterly Spotlight: Alexandria Doyle
I completed my undergrad at KU and obtained my BSN. I worked at KU as an ICU nurse and then graduated from the KU Nurse Anesthesia Program in 2016. I jumped right into my job as a CRNA after that. I have been KU through and through, and truly love this place.
What inspired you to become a CRNA?
"I always knew I wanted to do something in healthcare. The dad of my best friend growing up was a CRNA, and that is how I was introduced to the profession."
You have assisted in recruiting, onboarding and other committees with our CRNA group, why did you choose to serve in this capacity?
"I love my job at KU, and I want others to be as passionate about it as I am. I am a firm believer in giving back and serving others. I am involved so I have an active role in making this job everything I want it to be."
If I were a CRNA looking for a job, why would you say I should come to KU to work?
Who doesn't want to be a Jayhawk?! Working at a large academic medical center allows one to practice in a variety of settings providing different types of anesthetics. We have all levels of acuity. It promotes critical thinking and teamwork.
What is your personal mantra?
"I choose happiness. Right here, Right now."
In your life, what are you most proud of?
"I am most proud of my kids. My boys are my everything. Liam, 4 and Laken, 2."
What do you like to do in your spare time?
"I am big on family and enjoy spending as much time with them as I can. We often travel to the mountains or national parks around the country. We love to hike, fish, camp or just about anything outdoors."
