Alexis leads the Amplifying Youth Voice & Leadership grant fund, as well as provides support for other grant funds including the Supporting Organizations Led by People of Color and Rapid Response grant funds.

She previously taught English and humanities in the Boston Public School system and she also held teaching and administrative positions at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.


Alexis continues her commitment to education outside of Nellie Mae’s walls with various organizations by serving as an ACT/SAT prep instructor, Test of English for International Communication and Spanish instructor, and a dual teacher of reading and mathematics for K-2 students.
