BACKGROUND

After graduating high school, Alexis took a gap year to travel the world, undertaking five non-profit internships in five different countries, including Haiti, Rwanda, Jordan, and the Philippines. During this year, she was able to mature her interest in poverty alleviation from an ideological pursuit to a concrete one. While working with coffee farmers in Rwanda, Alexis was selected as an Ingram Scholar at Vanderbilt, where she went on to study Human and Organizational Development with a minor in Economics.

At Vanderbilt, Alexis continued to hone her interest in creating a more equitable world, volunteering with an array of organizations related to human trafficking, immigrant rights, and homelessness. Alexis went on to serve as Founder of Scriptural Reasoning and Vice President of Grassroots, an umbrella service organization at Vanderbilt. In all things, Alexis emphasized bilateral relationships, creating genuine friendships with those she met. Alexis created some particularly close bonds with those she met while volunteering at a transitional home, including Ray.

Alexis’ experience in relating to those from diverse backgrounds, both domestic and international, and her leadership in campus organizations and the Ingram Scholarship Program have prepared her well for her work with Unlocked. Additionally, her studies of markets, poverty, and organizational efficiency give her a strong theoretical background to complement her experiences.

AT UNLOCKED

Social in nature, Alexis enjoys managing human resources, community relations, marketing, and sales at Unlocked. With Corbin, she is also responsible for creating the website and social media, planning all events, and handling financials and paperwork. One of Alexis’ greatest joys in life is celebrating others, meaning birthdays are a source of endless potential for company bonding activities. Alexis spends the majority of her time at Unlocked laughing, cracking jokes, and being overly enthusiastic.
