Alexis Magness

Born and raised in Phoenix, Alexis had the good fortune to have lived in London for two years when her husband Patrick, a local architect, was transferred “across the pond”. Back in the Metro area, Alexis brings her unique talents and personable skill-set to azarchitecture/Jarson & Jarson.

Alexis is always exploring new frontiers. Her passion helping others and background in marketing, business development and design allows her to provide superior customer service as the Marketing Director/Executive Assistant at azarchitecture. She has won numerous awards for marketing, branding and advertising including AMA Spectrum, LMA, MarCom and Hermes. In addition, Alexis is pursuing her Arizona Real Estate License in order to serve azarchitecture customers to the fullest. She graduated magna cum laude from Arizona State University with a Bachelors of Science in Design and is looking forward to connecting with other “Sparky” Alumni.

Her interests include graphic design, architecture (especially remodeling mid-century modern homes!), art, fashion, music of all genres, yoga, and spending time with Patrick and their cattle dog, Bella. She is also the Membership Chair and Board Member of the Contemporary Forum, a support organization of the Phoenix Art Museum and enjoys volunteering at CF functions and events.
