Alexis considers East Lansing, Michigan, to be her hometown, though she has spent ten years living in San Diego, California. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from San Diego State University and a Master of Arts degree in Literature from the University of Colorado Denver (UCD). Most recently, she worked at the Writing Center at UCD and also taught Composition and Writing courses (both at UCD and the Community College of Denver).
Alexis is excited to work with medical students and faculty at RVU, particularly as the University is growing and expanding. She looks forward to increasing the Writing Center’s presence on campus. In her spare time, Alexis enjoys reading, hiking, camping, and eating s'mores by the fire-pit. She is married, with one daughter and two rescue mutts.
