Alexis began acting at the age of 5, and has since been following her dream, allowing her performance background to infuse her career choice of becoming a Drama Therapist. She graduated from the Orange County High School of the Arts in 1999, and then four years later, received her B.A. in Musical Theatre from UCLA. After performing professionally in LA for several years, she followed her instincts to New York, and attended NYU where she earned her M.A. in Drama Therapy. While in New York, she worked with at-risk high school students, homeless mentally disordered adults, and the aged and infirm at Menorah Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing Care. After returning home to California, she was hired at her high school alma mater, OCSA, to pioneer a Drama Therapy class, and teach this subject to seniors in the Integrated Arts Department. She also works with the Down Syndrome Association of Orange County, where she facilitates a weekly Drama Therapy group for adults with Down Syndrome.
