Hi, my name is Alexis. I grew up in Orange County, California but have also lived in Ohio and in Kentucky. I am thrilled to be a part of the Murrieta Family YMCA KidZone team! I have had a passion for working with kids from a young age. I started babysitting at 12 years old. Since then I’ve taught preschool, was a kids camp director and have worked for the KidZone at the YMCA in Lexington Kentucky. I love spending time with my husband Zach and my three children Avry, Liv and Archer. I also enjoy running, cooking and reading. To me, the biggest joy of working with children is that they have taught me more about myself than I think I could have learned if I had chosen any other type of work. Kids live in the moment and that is truly refreshing. I look forward to working with your children and watching them grow!
