Alexis has always possessed a deep love and respect for nature. As a child growing up in New Jersey she spent her time climbing trees, swimming, fishing, cliff jumping, kayaking and snorkeling. After moving to New York City to pursue a degree in International Studies, she discovered the mountain ranges of the Northeast. Whether it was working for Teach for America as a New York City Public School teacher or touring the world as a musician, she has always made time for epic adventures like backpacking the Sierras in California, leading multi-pitch climbs in Idaho's City of Rocks and hiking the Presidentials in New Hampshire. Alexis spends most weekends rock climbing, camping, snowboarding and hiking with her friends, family and her "adventure pup" Riz. Alexis is thrilled to be connecting her passion for education with her love of exploring through Discover Outdoors.
