Bio

My name is Alexandra D’Agostino and I have stuttered since I was 7. I am a Registered Nurse, having graduated from Nipissing University’s Nursing Scholar Practitioner Program, and I also have a BA Combined Honours in Psychology and Anthropology from Wilfrid Laurier University. Music is one of my passions, (I play 7 instruments!), as well as helping people and volunteering. I have spent 5 years volunteering with the National Stuttering Association in the United States, where I spent 3 of those years serving on their Teen Advisory Council. When I was invited to be on the Board of Directors for the Canadian Stuttering Association in 2014, I was thrilled to be able to volunteer with an association that was closer to home. Being on the Board of Directors has been such an extraordinary, and honouring experience to have had the opportunity to help revitalize the CSA from the ground up. By volunteering with the CSA and NSA, I hope to change other people’s lives, as the two stuttering associations did for me.
