Episode 151 - Health is Wealth with Alexis Robertson

by Hacker Valley Studio

Show Notes

Today in the studio, we have Alexis Robertson, Director of Diversity and Inclusion at a large law firm and a recovering lawyer. 

Alexis kicks in with a bit about herself, and shares “I am director of diversity inclusion at a large law firm but spent the first 10 years or so of my career dedicated to laws, going to law school and practicing as a lawyer for about seven and a half years before leaving legal practice closing in on six years ago, I grew up in the suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, spent most of my life in the Midwest, except for time spent in DC at American University for undergrad and then I went to the University of Michigan for law school. That's me in a nutshell.”

Alexis shares throughout this episode how her health, exercise and food habits all became habit with some very big changes.  It isn’t about getting healthy; it is about a long journey of being healthy.  You will hear a little bit about her food choices and why she made them, the exercises she partakes in, and how she balances it all.
