One of the best things about my job is getting to know all sorts of people from all walks of life who are living and working in our community. Our Local Rock Star recognition project has been one of the threads within the silver lining of this seemingly endless cloud of negative coronavirus news.

Meet Alexis Martin

All of the experience in the world could not have prepared anyone for the difficult challenges we are facing, but Alexis makes it seem easy. Alexis is a manager for a local United Market Street's StreetSide department.

Being a manager is a tough job, no matter the industry or department. I imagine that being a manager during a global pandemic is one of the most stressful jobs on the planet. Employees turn to managers for advice, guidance, and leadership.

Alexis was nominated by her employees, who said: "She sacrifices her time that could be spent with her fiancé, but she puts in a lot of time and effort for this job. Alexis comes in at 4 a.m. and sometimes doesn’t leave until our closing time, which is 8 p.m.! She makes sure the job is done perfectly, Alexis is definitely the best manager anyone can have."

Online grocery shopping has become a new approach for many shoppers as COVID-19 changes the way in which people normally behave. According to Alexis' employees, she has gone above and beyond to adapt to the changes.

Leandra, one of the team members working with Alexis, told us that Alexis "always makes sure we are all appreciated, all of my co-workers can easily agree that she deserves all of the credit in the world." Leandra went on to say that Alexis "knows how to make a very upset customer become a very happy one, oh-so-very well. She just knows how to do her job and how to do it well."

It takes a Super-Manager to be under the stress and strain brought on by the current crisis and still be able to maintain good rapport with employees. That's why Alexis Martin is most definitely a Local Rock Star!
