Alexis is a current student at Stanford University, studying Geological and Environmental Science, with aspirations to work internationally. Her interest in environmental science began in high school and flourished. She received a variety of recognition for her endeavors including her research in the implication of human contact on water quality in Southern Californian resevoirs, her participation on the 2010 International Canon Envirothon Championship team, and her attendance of the 2011 National Youth Science Camp as the sole California delegate. In the fall she will be traveling to Hawai'i with the Earth Systems department to do geological, ecological and anthropological field studies and research.

Her interests reach beyond the environs surrounding us; Alexis also works as an HIV test counselor with HIV*PACT, an anonymous and free on-campus testing service, volunteers at the Sexual Health Peer Resource Center, and takes pride in here growing work as a photographer. You can find her photographic work on Flickr, the subject of which covers her recent volunteer trip with Learning Enterprises to Romania to work in a small village and orphanage, teaching English and participating in a cultural exchange. She hopes to continue to travel to expand her awareness and understanding of the the world's peoples and its lands.
