As a child, Alexis Lessard’s friends and mentors helped her find a way to be her best self. Now, Lessard is committed to helping others in her local community do the same thing.
Through her company, the Marco Island Candle Company, Lessard donates $1 for every candle sold to a local charity on the island. In just three years, she has donated more than $4,000.
Alexis just launched The Lounge, a venue hidden behind an ice cream shop that gives guests a unique experience. During the day, people make candles, but at night the space turns into a speakeasy.
