Alexa Beaulieu, MPH

Research Manager, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington

As a research manager for the BRiTE Center, Alexa combines her experience in behavioral interventions with her commitment to global health equity. Her focus is on expanding digital mental health interventions in low and middle income countries.

 

Prior to working at the BRiTE Center, Alexa provided applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapeutic services to clients in both the Seattle area and China. While she enjoyed improving health at the individual level, she returned to school to make a larger impact at the population level. Alexa has worked on a variety of global mental health projects, including a project expanding mental health resources for women in Yemen, an economic evaluation of nutrition projects in low-middle income countries, and promoting equity in healthcare policy. She feels fortunate to combine her interests and experiences to advance global mental healthcare.

 

Alexa received her graduate degree in public health from the University of Washington concentrating on health systems and policy, and an undergraduate degree in exercise science from Western Washington University.

 

Outside of work, Alexa enjoys exploring new areas, being outdoors, and spending time with her friends and family.
