Alex Coffman, LCSW
What do your weekends look like?
If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Mac and cheese. I never stopped loving pasta or cheese and when they are combined the result is always delicious!
What’s your favorite holiday?
Halloween! I love going to haunted houses and seeing all the creative costumes. The candy is, of course, a huge plus.
