Dr. Axelrod’s love for the outdoors is what brought her to the area and to Carson Medical Group’s Pediatric team. She enjoys that there is so much to do around Northern Nevada and hopes to gain a few new hobbies while exploring all that the area has to offer. When she and her husband aren’t hiking or biking, you can find them kayaking Lake Tahoe as much as possible, or rock climbing together. Dr. Axelrod has always been very active; she was a competitive gymnast, and played rugby in high school and college.
She is also passionate about her patients. When you ask her what she wants for her patients, her reply is; “I would love to teach kids to be comfortable in their own skin and grow into the best versions of themselves they possibly can while maintaining a healthy lifestyle.” She also wants to express to the parents of her patients to enjoy every day with their kid(s) no matter the age.
“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
