Our team is dedicated to helping healthcare professionals, patients and communities learn about dysautonomia. We are extremely grateful for all that they do!
Alexandra has been an integral part of TDP’s growth and management since its beginning. She is a founding board member, serving as a board officer since TDP’s inception in 2014. Most recently, she was the Board President in 2022. Alexandra has been involved in Tampa Bay nonprofit work since the 1990’s, working with organizations including The Children’s Home Inc., The Florida Orchestra and the Hillsborough Education Foundation.

Cheryl became involved with The Dysautonomia Project in 2015 while a part-time employee at Network People, Nate and Kelly's Information Technology company. As Kelly's health continued to decline and The Dysautonomia Project continued to gain momentum, the board realized the nonprofit needed administrative support to manage the growing organization. To this day, Cheryl continues to work for Network People and also provides administrative and bookkeeping oversite for TDP. Over the years, she has gained an awareness of how life-altering dysautonomia symptoms can be, how much patients struggle and feel helpless, and why education is so critical. Cheryl is deeply passionate about helping fulfill TDP's mission to educate healthcare professionals, patients and the community about dysautonomia, and is personally involved in taking this education into local school districts. She has witnessed first-hand the impact that dysautonomia has had on her precious friend Kelly, and on many other patients she has been blessed to meet. As a result, Cheryl is deeply committed to TDP and helping the organization do whatever it takes to provide hope to those who suffer from autonomic nervous system disorders.
