Hailing from an itty bitty town in Louisiana known for meat pies and Steel Magnolias (yes, the movie!), I'm Alexis, a quirky, iced-coffee-dependent magazine editor and novice screenwriter based in New York. I developed a passion for storytelling at an early age while reporting on the inner workings of elementary school, and an interest in strong female leads from watching the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers on repeat.

I earned a B.A. in Mass Communication from Northwestern State University of Louisiana, with a minor in English. This university is also where one of my greatest accomplishments ever took place: I danced on top of a cafeteria table and was threatened with "severe" disciplinary action, but ironically went on to receive the highest honor a student could instead. 

My work has been featured in numerous national publications covering a wide range of topics, including entertainment, career, health, sex, and food. Although, my main focus remains telling the stories of women. I've interviewed female entrepreneurs, award-winning actresses, doctors, chefs,  and professional athletes, who've left me feeling more inspired than ever.

Likes: rom-coms, contemporary romance novels, 90's R&B, tacos, happy quotes, Girl Scout cookies, dancing in my bedroom mirror to Whitney Houston, graphic tees, blogging most days

Dislikes: rudeness, holes, mascots, going out on Friday nights
