Over the course of the 37 years she spent in the Victorian branch of the then federal Department of Health and Ageing, Alexis sequentially managed all of the aged care programs funded by the Commonwealth. She was responsible for introducing new programs in Victoria — such as standards for nursing homes and hostels, user rights and community care packages — and finally for the management of all home care for the aged in Victoria, including the Home and Community Care program. Alexis is currently employed as a policy officer for a provider of multicultural aged care and settlement services for migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.
