Alexis has been involved with The Fund for Santa Barbara since moving to the area in 1998. Having volunteered in various capacities for Bread and Roses throughout the years, she looks forward to supporting the organization in her new role as a Board Member.
Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, she left to attend American University in Washington, D.C. and Birkbeck University of London, School of Economics. After graduating cum laude with a BA in History and Law, she returned to the west coast, finding her home and heart with husband Michael Weaver.
Alexis has held various marketing and management positions over the past 22 years. She has worked and consulted for local companies and non-profits including ABC-CLIO, Rising Media, Celerus Diagnostics and Hearts Therapeutic Equestrian Center. In 2000 she helped found local start-up Fastclick, working as VP of Operations and Director of Marketing Communications. In 2005 she took Fastclick to a public valuation and listing on the NSDQ (FSTC).
After the success of Fastclick, she took time to devote herself to her children and volunteer work. She is currently a Trustee for Marymount of Santa Barbara, and manages her father’s foundation, the Ellen H. Atterbury & Malcolm Atterbury, Jr. Foundation, dedicated to ending discrimination and encouraging social and cultural respect and understanding.
