Living throughout Africa since 2009, Alexis has worked on an extensive list of programs from humanitarian aid to wildlife rescue. In the past she has provided strategies for development, implementation, marketing and evaluation of multiple humanitarian aid/conservation projects in East & South Africa as well as Indonesia.

She realized through this work that turning the dreams of others into a reality was her true passion and her experience of working with people at all levels of society gave her the idea for Einstein Rising. Alexis holds a Bachelors of Science from The New School in NYC.

Her personal passion is wildlife rescue and volunteering with conservation groups in Seattle and Uganda.
