Alexis Burton, Administrative Assistant

Email: officemanager@whatcomlandtrust.org

Alexis moved to Bellingham in 2013 to attend Western Washington University, where she bopped around between several different programs before landing in Huxley’s Environmental Education major. She interned with NSEA for her final quarter, before moving to Troy Montana as an AmeriCorps VISTA for a year. These experiences highlighted for Alexis the vital connections of organizations made for the people by the people, and so she returned to school to pursue Nonprofit Management through the University of Montana. In 2019, Alexis returned to Bellingham to be with her partner and completed her studies in Nonprofit management online. In 2020, Alexis joined Cedar Tree Montessori School as an assistant Children’s House teacher and continued to build on her love of community connections and crafting summer camps for families to meet their need for childcare during the pandemic. Now, in 2022, Alexis has joined Whatcom Land Trust as the Administrative Assistant to build on her skills in community building, curiosity engagement, and support in caring for the lands we occupy. 

In her spare time, Alexis loves to forage, hike and bike with her partner, garden with her housemates, and read.
