Alexis grew up in Odessa, Washington where she graduated in a high school class of twelve students. After high school, Alexis was accepted to and began attending Washington State University in Pullman (second generation WSU Cougar!).
While at WSU, Alexis was involved with Greek Life at Kappa Alpha Theta, worked at the WSU Children’s Center, spent time as a research assistant in the IMPACT lab, and worked remotely as a registered behavioral therapist (RBT) for children with autism at SOAR Behavioral Therapy. Prior to graduation, Alexis began working at Transitions, a transitional living facility for women experiencing homelessness.
In the future, Alexis is interested in pursuing a career in family advocacy, pursuing a masters degree in child life and becoming a child life specialist, or pursuing a career in social work. She would like to return to Pullman at some point during her professional career.
