My name is Alexis and I'm a Senior Academic Advisor at the University of Kansas. Prior to working as an advisor, I served as a Graduate Teaching Assistant for the English Department at KU, where I earned my M.A. in Rhetoric and Composition in 2015. During the three years that I taught English 101 and 102, I discovered how much I enjoyed working closely with students in order to help them cultivate their skills and interests.

Although I can advise students interested in any academic path, my specialty is advising Pre-Medical students. As a Pre-Medical advisor, I work with students on everything from developing academic goals to practicing their medical school interviews. Along with Paul Crosby, my partner in Pre-Medical advising, I teach UNIV 492: How to Apply to Medical School.

I also teach KU's orientation seminar, UNIV 101: http://firstyear.ku.edu/univ101

When I'm not at work, you can probably find me cuddling with my adorable cat Tonks Kitty, binging on Netflix, planning my dream vacation, experimenting in the kitchen, or playing kickball in Lawrence's very own Kaw Valley Kickball League (go Pawsh Wash Filthy Animals!).
