Biography

A native of St. Louis, Alesstrah joined the Plancorp team in 2018 after working as a scientist developing vaccinations. Although quite different from what she does now, the role honed her analytical and team-building skills, both of which she uses at Plancorp.

Alesstrah’s passion for helping others is a thread that runs through her life—and it’s the reason she chose to pursue a career in financial services. She says nothing is more rewarding than interacting with clients and seeing the impact she and her team have made in their lives. These conversations are especially meaningful when clients share the peace of mind they now have, knowing they’re on track to reach their goals.

In Alesstrah’s spare time, she enjoys spending time with her daughter and great love of her life, 2-year-old Amerrah. Her other interests include traveling, going to the gym and shopping at Target.
