Alexis started her career as a child life specialist and provided psychosocial support to children in hospitals. She quickly realized that it was much easier to prevent injuries than having to help a child through a painful procedure or supporting a grieving family who lost their child to a motor vehicle crash. In 1993, Alexis became a member of her local Safe Kids Palm Beach County, and served as the local coordinator for 10 years before finding her way to Safe Kids Worldwide in 2006.
