From her first day at Smith + Malek, Alix Millan was drawn to the people and the work environment. As an administrative assistant and receptionist, she helps us carry out our mission of making tomorrow better for our clients, our employees, and our communities. It’s a sentiment that Alix carries with her outside of work, too. She regularly volunteers with Real Life Ministries for their Missions team and is a volleyball coach for their children’s league.
Taking time to herself for prayer and a zip fizz in the morning helps Alix bring her best to work each day. She enjoys spending her free time around bodies of water, including visits to the ocean and, closer to home, Idaho’s lakes and rivers. Alix dreams of one day getting her pilot’s license.
