The Women’s Fund honors Alexis Fuller as a Door County Shero!
Alexis Fuller and her family are taking over the Barker childcare center as the Door Community Child Development Center. She put up a good fight and worked really hard to get the right partners involved to save child care for Sturgeon Bay. She is the SHERO our community needed when we learned the Y would not be able to re-open the Barker.
Not only did she lose her employment with the Y’s announcement along with the rest of the Barker staff, but families that relied on their service were forced to reconsider their own employment. Alexis had a clear vison. She wanted to bring back the staff, kids and their families to be a part of the solution. Not only did she see a need for child care but she wanted to find a way for the staff (all women by the way) to make a livable wage. She is a strong, passionate woman that when told “No” goes in to #GirlBoss mode and gets the job done!
Thank you, Alexis!
