Alea Cox was born in San Mateo, California but moved to Arizona as a young child. After a brief hiatus of 12 years, while her husband, Daniel, was in the military, Arizona is home. Alea is a board-certified pediatric nurse practitioner. She graduated from the University of South Alabama with a Master of Science in Nursing Pediatric Primary Care. Before becoming a nurse practitioner, she spent 14 years as a registered nurse caring for newborns and their families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. She is very excited to be a part of the DVP team after bringing her children here for the last nine years, and is looking forward to continuing the tradition of providing excellent care and education to the families in our community.
