With her bird’s-eye view of all the moving parts, Alexis thrives in the fast-paced R-Comm environment, where there’s never a dull moment.
What I Do
I am responsible for the organization, direction, and administration of a variety of business services including Human Resources, Finance and Budgeting, Procurement, and Administrative and Facility Operations. Working alongside the Vice Chancellor and our leadership team, the Business Office strives to be the silent gears that make the department turn while providing the utmost support for our R-Comm colleagues to advance our mission.
My Favorite Things

Want to buy or sell a house? I'm a realtor on the side.
Our team continues to make the gears turn behind the scenes of R-Comm's daily operations. I think we did a great job helping staff to transition to remote environments and ensured they can continue their daily functions as needed.
