Title: Vice President, Global Customer Fulfillment Supply Chain
Kids: Tate, 5, Marlow, 3, and Brock, 2
Going for a job she didn’t believe she was qualified for paid off big-time for Alexis. When Target was recruiting for finance and merchandising roles at a career fair, the then–grad student decided to apply anyway. “I may have been the only candidate with operations written behind my name.” That bold action led to interviews, then a summer internship and, ultimately, a full-time position.
The self-assured mom of three not only knows how to get in but also when to move on: before becoming 75 percent effective. “I would’ve learned enough at that point to build from it in my next position.” Her most recent job switch called for relocating her family. "My husband, John, and I have relocated three times now. We’ve had many difficult talks, but it’s strengthened our bond."
Despite the big move, her new jobs is giving her some serious flexibility: “Amazon’s culture supports me. I can attend school events and doctor appointments and cover the occasional sick day, all things that give my mommy bones satisfaction.” We get it, Alexis.
