Alexis Stumpf earned a Master of Architecture from the University of Michigan and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture with High Honors from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she attended on a Chick Evans Scholarship. She believes in the power of architecture to lift the human spirit and strengthen communities and strives to advocate for people, places, and the planet in her practice. Her previous architecture experience focused on creating homes for traditionally underserved populations, particularly seniors and people with disabilities, and she is excited to continue serving in this capacity at Landon Bone Baker Architects.
Before joining LBBA she and her husband spent a year traveling and volunteering, doing everything from working at a children’s art studio in Mexico to installing water filters in rural Cambodia to van camping along the entire east coast of Australia. Closer to home, she has been deeply involved with AIA Chicago, where she led the Community Interface Committee and helped develop the Architects in Schools Program to introduce elementary students to architecture, serves as a design reviewer and mentor for architecture students at the University of Illinois, provides a foster home to shelter dogs with One Tail at a Time, and is a volunteer architect with Chicago Tiny House Inc.
