Alex Rios is passionate about making learning stick.

She comes to Holdsworth after a decade of working as a physical therapist and a director of clinical development. Learning was central to both roles. As a clinician, she helped her patients achieve rapid resolution of their injuries by employing adult learning strategies. As a director of clinical development, she designed trainings for physical therapists that significantly enhanced patient outcomes and experiences.

Alex’s passion for learning stems from her time teaching high school chemistry and physics to an underserved student population in San Antonio. While she is proud of how much growth her students showed on state science exams, she is even prouder of how hard they worked to develop and pursue ambitious career goals after graduation.

Alex holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California and a doctorate degree from MGH Institute of Health Professions.

In her spare time, you can find Alex in the ceramics studio making pottery for her loved ones, baking cookies, or buying too many plants.
