Alexis was an Environmental Engineering major with a dual major in Sustainability. She was a member of the Honors Program and acted as the Public Relations Chair for the university’s chapter of Society of Women Engineers. She also served on the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences Advisory Board. Alexis was building a water quality sensor for a citizen science project. Additionally, she was in the process of applying for the Research Experience and Apprenticeship Program through the Hamel Center for Undergraduate Research. Alexis served as one of Handler Hall’s Sustainability Advocates. She planned a reusable utensil sale; the profits went toward “symbolically adopting”/sponsoring a wild animal through the World Wildlife Fund. This animal now serves as Handler’s mascot. Working with the Sustainability Institute gave Alexis a more holistic outlook on environmental conservation. In her free time, she enjoyed playing soccer, painting, running, hiking, and playing with her baby sister. Alexis loves National Parks and has made it her goal to visit all 63 in the United States.
