First and foremost, Alexis embodies gratitude – she lives, eats, and breaths being grateful.

She is particularly grateful for the remarkable gift the human body is – and the beautiful things that are achieved when the mind, body and spirit operate in harmony. She is passionate about living intentionally and practicing stewardship of the body’s we’ve been given – for the sake of loving and serving the people around us– living out the purposes divinely placed in our lives! She is constantly amazed at the epic group of people that have been placed in her life – who  inspire, shape and challenge her to live well.

Alexis is a paper enthusiast, and can usually be found with a pen and paper at her fingers. When she is not writing, she loves spending time in the quiet morning hours, cross-fitting, cooking, reading, running and being in or by the ocean. She enjoys working out in the sunshine, driving with the music up, and can regularly be found at a friend’s wedding – on the dance floor. Driftwood, coffee, clean spaces, handwritten notes and anything wrapped in brown paper and twine are some of her favorite things.
