According to Alexis, public policy work is both an art and a science. Before coming to the Foundation in 2008, she used her biology background in Boston and Washington, D.C., where she led large-scale program evaluations and policy research for the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the National Science Board and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
Ultimately, Alexis decided she could make a greater impact by translating research and analysis into actionable recommendations. Public policy has been a perfect fit — a combination of art and science that has allowed her to work on a broad range of issues.
Working with a wide variety of partners, Alexis navigates the sometimes murky world of policy to develop data-driven, informed recommendations. She works to ensure a future where Colorado communities promote health and health care systems deliver excellent, affordable care to all Coloradans. Alexis appreciates spending time with so many talented, thoughtful and passionate individuals.
A fourth-generation Coloradan, Alexis often visits her favorite tourist attraction, the state’s jewel, Rocky Mountain National Park. More than anything she loves spending time with her two young daughters, husband and yellow Lab.
