Alejandra Lemus was born in El Paso, Texas, and was raised in Juarez in Chihuahua, Mexico. Her family lived a transnational life between El Paso and Juarez until she was seven years old and her family permanently settled in El Paso. She lives in San Marcos, Texas, and is completing her Master's degree in sociology at Texas State University. She also works as a graduate assistant for the Director of the Latina/o Studies minor at Texas State University. She will soon be moving to Albuquerque, New Mexico to attain her Ph.D. in the University of New Mexico's sociology department. Her interests are centered on immigration, education, medical sociology, and health inequalities. Specifically, her Master's thesis examines the differences in access to health information needed, satisfaction of care, and utilization of care between those whose primary language is English and those whose primary language is not English. Her previous experience working at MCN and personal experiences sparked her academic interests to serve to protect and improve the health of migrants, those who are not fluent English speakers and other underserved, vulnerable populations. In her free time, she likes to cook, practice yoga, go hiking, and listen to music.
