Alexis Roberts is our Volunteer Advocate Coordinator with the Crisis Team. A first-generation college graduate from West Texas A&M University with a Bachelor’s in Social Work, she is currently enrolled and working towards her Master’s Degree, also in Social Work with the intention to obtain an LCSW. Originally from South Texas, she proudly claims Amarillo as her home town.

She is a dedicated advocate for Women’s Rights, LGBTQIA rights, Mental Health Education and comprehensive sex education.
A proud step-mom of three and a dog mom of three, she busies herself with hobbies like hiking the Palo Duro Canyon, DIY carpentry work, knitting, marching for activist causes, attending community events, reading non-fiction and discovering culture through cooking ethnic meals for her family.
