Name: Alexis Correa
Title: Finance and Human Resources Manager
Before joining Make-A-Wish Arizona: I worked for the investment management giant, Vanguard. I had a great time there, and I learned a ton. However, I felt that using my skills to help those in need made me far happier than anything else in the world.
Education: Texas State University, Major in Finance, Cum Laude
About me: I was originally born in Chicago, Illinois but I spent most of my life growing up in Austin, Texas. I care for two bunnies with my longtime girlfriend and we love to go camping. I started out working in the financial industry straight out of college with one of the largest investment management firms in the world. The industry was lucrative, but it didn’t quite give me the satisfaction that I was looking for. I then made the decision to go from for profit to nonprofit. It has been one of the best decision of my life.
Favorite thing about Make-A-Wish Arizona: My favorite thing about working here is that everyone truly cares for and believes in our mission! I love how I feel like I did something good in the world everyday day at work.
My wish would be: That’s a hard one. If there was a wish that allowed for everyone’s wishes to be granted, that would be my wish. However, a more selfish wish would be to travel the world with my family.
