Alexis Raymond

Consultant

Corporate Affairs Marketing

Alexis Raymond is a writer and editor for Cisco’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program. She thinks it is one of the best jobs in the world because every day she talks to, meets, and writes about smart and dedicated people who are using technology to change the world – and that is the truth, not a cliché.

Alexis began her career as a print reporter and still loves writing compelling stories that people like to read and may even find inspiration in. Before joining Cisco’s CSR team, Alexis was the Director of Communications for RedRover, a U.S. nonprofit organization that provides emergency sheltering and disaster relief for animals, financial assistance for veterinary care, and humane education for elementary-age children. She has also been a writer, editor, project manager, and grammar cop for two universities, a hospital, a graphic design studio, and a Washington, DC-based media consulting firm.

When Alexis isn’t sitting at the computer or interviewing people in far-flung corners of the world via WebEx, she enjoys reading, traveling, planning to travel, biking, walking her dogs, cooking, and, not coincidentally, eating out. She is also a board member of the Sacramento Area Animal Coalition, a nonprofit that provides low-cost spay/neuter for low-income pet owners.
