“I am very honored and excited to be chosen to join the already amazing, innovative, and intelligent team at Alcor Life Extension Foundation. My passion for nursing began with a passion for human life, and that has helped me lead a very healthy nursing career where patient advocacy was at the forefront of every single decision. I am very pleased to be (back) at Alcor, especially in a role that allows me to interact with our wonderful members and assist them in their journey with Cryonics. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me to learn more about who I am and what my goals are as the newest member of your Alcor team.” -Shelby Custer, BSN, RN
