Lexi joined WCNC Charlotte after serving as a nightside reporter at KBAK/KBFX in Bakersfield, California. During her time there, Lexi covered major local and regional news, including an active shooter call at Memorial Hospital, a multi-county RV pursuit ending in a manhunt, and a mass shooting that left six dead. 

Lexi graduated cum laude from California State University, Northridge with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Communication Studies. During college, she interned with iHeartMedia Inc. Los Angeles, working in on-air production, marketing, and promotions. 

Throughout her college career, she worked as a multimedia reporter, anchor, and producer for Matador News, a local newscast, and OnPoint, a public affairs show. She also was a reporter and anchor for the Southern California station, 88.5 KCSN, where she voiced the morning show and hosted a lifestyle segment. She also held leadership positions on campus, including President of the sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma. 

Trust is a core value she holds close to her heart as a journalist. She is deeply touched when people speak with her and trust her to tell their stories. Being accurate and fair is a top priority that she takes very seriously because she understands her words have weight. Her job is to hold those in power accountable and be a voice for those who feel they are voiceless. She hopes her viewers know that she and her colleagues do everything possible to get the story right because they do care and want to build trust.

Lexi is from Tucson, Arizona but has also lived in Southern California, including San Diego and Los Angeles. 

When she’s not at work you can find her trying new restaurants, practicing yoga or exploring the East Coast for the first time!
