She sells clean medical-grade skincare products like SPF, cleanser, eye cream, and corrective creams.
Her passion for treating and caring for patients started while she was a child. She became interested in plastic surgery through her volunteer work with Operation Smile. At the age of 16, she went on her first medical mission to Morocco. While in Morocco, Dr. Alexis saw first-hand how the lives of children and their families changed with a simple 1-hour operation. Her experiences in Morocco further reinforced her passion to focus her studies on a career in medicine.
She attended St. George’s University in Grenada, and upon her graduation was matched into a Plastic Surgery residency program.
