Alexandra Schrank, born and raised in Charlotte, NC, moved two hours west to Asheville in 2010. Growing up in untreated alcohol and drug-infested environment, Alexandra experienced a lot of unhealthy pain, seeing first-hand what a life without a solution for mental illness and the disease of addiction looked like. Raised primarily by her paternal grandparents, Alexandra lost her Grandmama Jean to multiple health issues in early 2000. As a young 11-year-old girl, Alexandra took over many of the household duties after Jean’s death while her Granddaddy Bill fought dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. In 2004, Alexandra’s mother died at age 33 from a drug overdose after many years of bad choices and life on the streets. Bouncing around from different Aunts, Uncles, and boyfriends, Alexandra floundered about without a solid home life.
Despite her hardships, Alexandra channeled her pain and has consistently maintained employment since she was 15 years old, while also earning honor roll, and placing as Valedictorian of her high school graduating class in 2007. She was also featured in the newspaper her senior year as Who’s Who Among American High School Students. For years, Alexandra survived off pure grit and self-motivation. With a strong desire for more, Alexandra ventured to Asheville in search of a better way. Spending her free time on personal growth and development, Alexandra made several fundamental life changes to build a strong foundation for her life and began a spiritual journey. Throughout the years, Alexandra believes God put specific angels in her life who freely gave of their time, energy, and wisdom to help guide her along her journey towards recovery.
Enlightened to learn that life didn’t have to be a struggle, Alexandra began to believe in and started thriving with the law of attraction and abundance. Asheville is where she met some of her very best friends, whom she considers family, and learned so many new and fascinating hobbies. She also learned that with hard work and discipline she would be able to achieve many things! At UNC Asheville, Alexandra earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management with a focus in Marketing as a first-generation college student. There she conducted undergraduate research under her mentor and distinguished author, MaryLynn Manns to learn more about Grief in the Workplace.
Here in Asheville is where Alexandra met her husband, Curt. He has worked in the addiction treatment and mental health industry for the past 10+ years, helping folks learn a new way of life. Curt focuses his energy on cutting-edge and proven treatment modalities that yield high results. Together they have 3 little boys. They love to travel, hike, bike, cook, watch live music, and watch and play sports.
