Alexis’ love of the mountains began on family ski trips in and around the Mad River Valley, and that love has since grown to encompass backpacking and other outdoor adventures. In 2017, Alexis graduated from a dual degree program between Vermont Law School, where she primarily studied land use and conservation, and the University of Cambridge, from which she obtained a master’s degree in Environmental Policy. That summer, she thru-hiked the Long Trail. Alexis is an attorney at Downs Rachlin Martin PLLC in Burlington, where she focuses on real estate and other land use matters. She also is a member of the GMC Land Conservation Committee. In addition to hiking and skiing, Alexis enjoys cooking, running, and attending live music.
