Chief Innovations Officer; Board Member
Alexis Neumann is a senior at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA double majoring in Music and Comparative History of Ideas, with a minor in Digital Experimental Art and New Media. A passionate artist, performer, and activist, Alexis loves creating interactive research-based installation art. She has been awarded for her work as a researcher and artist in the Mary Gates Honors Scholars Research Program, the Summer Institute In the Arts and Humanities (Seattle, 2016), and the University of Washington Undergraduate Research Conference (Seattle, 2017) as well as others. As a performer she was heavily involved in the San Diego musical theater community performing with the Coronado Playhouse, Neo Opera, Old Globe Honors, as well as many other theater, choral and opera organizations.
In addition to her many professional and academic endeavors, Alexis has managed to balance a full course load, a busy work schedule, as well as being an active voice for the Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Chronic Pain/Inflammation community. Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is a connective tissue auto-immune disorder with symptoms including chronic pain, joint dislocations, and osteoarthritis. She is passionate about aiding and supporting others with invisible illnesses and mental health disorders.
In her spare time, Alexis paints, teaches music classes to local elementary and middle schoolers, explores the intersection between up-and-coming technology and art, and eats a lot of Chipotle. She enjoys spontaneous dance parties with her roommates, a revitalizing Yoga practice, and forever learning how to show Jesus’ grace and love to those around her.
Alexis joined the ImpACT On Stage team in its grass roots when she helped found and originate the organization. She was inspired by the way she could utilize the thing she loved the most to promote open-mindedness, peace, and respect. Today she serves as Chief Innovations Officer as well as an active board member. She feels immensely fortunate to have had a hand in growing the organization — working alongside exceptional human beings, artists, and entrepreneurs — and is so thrilled to see the amazing results that ImpACT continues to generate in the coming years.
