They have worked in the College of Engineering in different capacities for several years. Alexis has a B.A. in both English and International Studies from the University of Utah. They are a self-proclaimed “nerd” and enjoy stories of all forms.

Am I the right person for you to contact? Check below:
  • All students who haven’t applied to the University of Utah yet should contact me with any questions.
  • Admitted first-year students who have already decided to attend the U and have paid their enrollment deposit should sign up for orientation, where all your questions about classes and registration will be answered by the advising team.
  • Admitted prospective first-year students who are still deciding where to attend can contact me or their future advisor.
  • Admitted transfer students will work with me on their admission to the major and any transfer course articulation and will meet their advisor at orientation.
  • Current students inquiring about the BS/MS program or other graduate school options.
