Alexis C. Harris is a passionate artist, mother, creator and event manager. Originally from Washington, D.C., Alexis now resides in Upstate New York with her fiancé and daughter. After attending the Rochester Institute of Technology, Alexis spent four years as an Event Coordinator for the American Cancer Society. She is currently the Special Events Manager for Habitat for Humanity and serves on the American Cancer Society Associate Board of Advisors. One of her most defining moments was in 2017, when Alexis conceptualized, planned, and successfully executed her first Inspire Photo Gallery – an event where she interviewed and photographed more than 15 cancer survivors and caregivers, wrote articles on each of them, locked in multiple sponsors and media ads, and published an event magazine – all in under two months. This event was widely received throughout Western New York and further fueled Alexis’ passion for creating powerful experiences for the community through meaningful events. Believing that the ultimate key to life is growth, Alexis is taking on a new challenge and focusing on the creation of her first event and media company with a mission to positively inspire through memorable, engaging, and profound experiences.
