Pastor Alessandra Tavares, Business Owner at Tavares Brick Pavers Inc., has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the fields of contracting and religion.
Motivated by her faith in God, perseverance, and hope for what the future holds, Ms. Tavares has excelled in her role as the president of Tavares Brick Pavers, Inc. since 2001 when she and her husband started the company. As the leader of the business, whose mission is to sell and install brick pavers for commercial and residential clients in the Sarasota, Siesta Key, Longboat Key, Bradenton, Venice, Anna Maria Island, and Palmetto areas of Florida, she is responsible for overseeing numerous employees and all operations—which includes interlocking brick paving driveways, walkways, and pool and patio decks. She has found it incredibly rewarding to provide people with these services and build strong relationships with her clients.
In addition, Ms. Tavares is devoted to her faith in God and lives her life in “love, peace, and joy” as a pastor and member at Children of Light Church, a chaplain in her local community, and a board member with the Sarasota Outreach Solutions charity. As a testament to her astounding work, she was honored by Sarasota Magazine as part of “The Best of Sarasota” in 2014, 2019, and 2020, and was most recently featured in a 2021 issue of Suncoast Brazil USA Magazine. Looking toward the future, she hopes to be able to help her community more, particularly those who come from or live in broken homes.
