As the Community Outreach Intern, Alexis focuses on cultivating relationships with our referral and community partners. Alexis is currently a senior at Aquinas College, triple majoring in Community Leadership, International Studies and Sustainable Business and is a graduate of Grand Rapids Catholic Central (Go Cougars!). Her passion for serving began in 2nd grade – raising money for the Red Cross after 9/11 – and has been an important and major part of her life since. Alexis hopes to work for an international non-profit in girls’ education or sustainable villages in developing countries after graduation. Alexis is blessed with two amazing sisters, loving parents and a great community of friends. Alexis is beyond excited for what is to come at the CHC and can’t wait to see what God’s plan is for this amazing place.
When Alexis isn’t studying or spending time at the CHC, she is striving to become Leslie Knope (Little Sebastian forever!). Alexis loves all music under the sun: everything from Queen to Tim McGraw to The Cars to Alabama Shakes. Alexis’s favorite movie is You’ve Got Mail and her favorite book is Where The Wild Things Are. She wishes someday to travel all over the world, climb every mountain range and to be fluent in Spanish, French, Swahili and Creole.
