In 2009, she was awarded the Department of Music Award from Skagit Valley College, where she graduated with honors.

Alexis absolutely loves working with older adults. Drawn to their rich wisdom, unique life stories and sense of humor, she passionately cares for every individual she interacts with. Her gentle and patient approach helps to engage clients and bring about profound responses. Alexis' music therapy philosophy can be summed up in this way: Like a bridge, music provides support and connection, leading to an improved quality of life.
