Lexie is a self-taught juggler + former student-athlete. Specifically played basketball and soccer.
Her #1 guilty pleasure is Dominos Pepperoni Pizza with ranch. Don't you dare forget the ranch.
Lexie is a lover of true crime, HGTV, podcasts, and a great fiction book right before bed.
While she lives in Southern California, Lexie is from Portland, Oregon and will always be an PNW girl at heart.
Lexie is terrified of spiders and sharks but has NO problem jumping off cliffs and paragliding in the Swiss Alps.
She lived abroad for
6-months in Italy during college studying art, language & wine, and today is a self-proclaimed travel addict.
She is not a night owl OR a morning person - she thrives between 10am and 7pm comfortably.
Growing up she was active in both sports AND musical theater - she actually played a starring role in a community theater production!
You'll find Lexie Sippin' on Sauv Blanc, an Oregon Pinot, Cab, a Rosé on a sunny day,
or a spicy cucumber margarita with a tahin rim.
