M. Alexis Morgan was drawn to humanitarian mission work around the
age of thirteen when she learned about the appalling living
conditions of people in other parts of the world, through watching
tv infomercials for overseas relief agencies. She could hardly
believe that this was happening on the same planet on which she was
living. She knew she had to do something to help relieve poverty
overseas: at thirteen, her weekly allowance sponsored a child; in
her last year of secondary school, pursuing a career in nursing was
her next step towards one day working abroad.
Two decades later, Alexis brought her experience as a Community Health Nurse in Canada to working in Kenya in the field of Community Development.
Presently, Alexis resides in Prince George, BC with her spouse, Wayne Morgan. There, she enjoys time spent with family and friends, and inspiring her students in her new career as a music and art teacher.
