As a Doctor of Pharmacy turned Digital Strategist, Alexis uses her analytic brain + adaptability to get ahead of the algorithm while allowing empathy + intuition to guide her content creation.

Testimonials

hear from our clients

”Krista manages the delicate balance of a business owner’s ego and anxiety with absolute grace.

She is a fountain of knowledge about web design, branding, copywriting, SEO and more.

She has counseled me though my perfection paralysis and has cheered me through my (sometimes hesitant) leaps forward into the great unknown that is modern marketing. She is a treasure.”

Daria MacGregor

“What I love most about working with kapwa studio is how easy everything is — it’s easy to chat, it’s easy to brainstorm, it’s easy to plan, it’s easy to receive reports, and it’s easy to pivot as needed.

Ultimately, I love that everything across my brand’s media platforms is cohesive.

Working with kapwa, I’ve gotten increased followers, increased engagement, insane Pinterest views, and MORE TIME to do things.

Camille E.

“What sets this gig apart from others is the quality of work that Alexis puts in regardless of how big or small the project is — she is always going above and beyond.

She is truly intelligent and proficient. I was not expecting in-depth research prior to our call however Alexis put lots of time researching the project. Aways an honor to work with her and will continue doing so! Thanks so much for everything!!”
