Alexis London

Alexis London is the executive director of Bayview Foundation, which is currently navigating an ambitious redevelopment.

Alexis London — Lexi to friends — enjoyed her job as a lead baker at Manna Cafe & Bakery on North Sherman Avenue in Madison.

This was a decade ago, and London, with a new child, had temporarily stepped away from nonprofit work. She loved baking and even liked the solitude of the hours, the predawn drives through deserted streets, passing a man on her way to Manna who inexplicably swept his driveway every morning around 3 a.m.
