In 2002 Alexis, unknowingly, began her journey as a poet; writing her first poem, “God’s work.”  Since the initial writing of that first poem, Alexis has channeled her emotions onto paper. She refers to poetry “her therapy” and thanks God for a beautiful gift. She is also thankful for finding her gift and her passion early on in life.

In 2014, Alexis self published her first poetry book titled, “Journey Thru Love” which chronicles feelings of love and heartbreak. She published Journey thru Love part 2: Every journey has its end, in 2017.

In 2018, Alexis added three book credentials to her name, including being featured in CT’s Top 50 poets book, as well as “Ambition” a collective work of those who have overcame obstacles in life.

Alexis continues to write and help others achieve their dreams of being author.

Alexis’s poetry philosophy is,

“Without poetry, I wouldn’t be who I was, who I am and who I will be.”
