She has been part of the AlEn family for more than 10 years, and has transcended into service through AlEn USA's Finance Department since day one. She loves working at the company, and one memorable thing she tells us is that she has seen it evolve from a small office to a full-fledged corporation.
Self-realization is an important part of her life, and she shares with us that this coming December she will accomplish a very big goal for her? proudly, she will finish her university studies and could not be happier for this achievement. She is graduating with an associate's degree in business administration. She started her family at a very early age, and had always wanted to finish school, so she never strayed from that goal.
Alexis is a wife, mother of 3 children and grandmother of 4 young grandchildren. She keeps her weekends busy living and enjoying with all of them. Her family is vital to her. She has 4 sisters and a brother. She shares with us that her greatest example in life are her sisters. She describes them as strong, inspiring and resilient.

Her hobbies include sleeping and watching Broadway musicals, especially Hamilton; she knows the entire soundtrack.
Alexis is an example of inspiration. On this Women's Day, she shares with everyone to "Use what makes you different to make a difference. We all have something different and unique to share, and we can make a difference". One thing she admires about women is that they have a vast capacity to solve problems and see how to make things happen.
She asks all of us to value and take care of ourselves, as we are all very special.
