Alexis brings creativity and a deep passion for education to everything she does. After earning her Masters of Education from North Carolina State University, she spent eight years in leadership and curriculum development roles for higher education organizations before joining us at Hedges. She prides herself in her skill at building consensus among peers and clients, giving each person a voice in order to engage their individual passions.
It’s a never ending positive outlook that drives Alexis to thrive in the nonprofit community. “Non-profit organizations make it possible for the world around us to become better,” she explains, “and for the people within it to have the same opportunity for care and support.” Her energy is infectious. Even in the face of challenges, her dedication to service is at the forefront of her mind and her mission to impact the lives of others never wavers.
“Individuals that are driven, truly authentic and give of themselves to ensure good for others inspire me.”
In addition to her position as Secretary of the Board of Directors for the Domestic Violence Network and Nominating Chair on the Board of Directors for the Junior League of Indianapolis, Alexis has also run several marathons, is the founding member of her book club, and enjoys traveling with her partner, Alex, and her child, Leo.
