“My passion for international education stems from my study abroad experience where I experienced the cultural transitions between my home and host culture. I learned how resilient one can become when living in a constant state of being off-center from what I consider,normal. Witnessing this same resiliency and growth in students during their season off campus continues to deepen my passion for working in international education.”
Education
In 2016, Alexis graduated from Hope College in Holland, Michigan with a degree in international studies with a business emphasis. Alexis entered Hope to pursue a degree in nursing, but changed majors after her transforming studying abroad experience!
