Lexie grew up in East San Jose, attending Noble Elementary and Piedmont Middle School. Since she was 5 years old, she has played club soccer at NVYSL, PAC, San Jose Surf, and MVLA San Jose. Lexie was a varsity player at Piedmont Hills High School. Currently, she is studying engineering at West Valley College. Lexie has been with Jodi for 3 years, both playing and coaching for her.
Lexie’s favorite soccer memory was her junior year of high school soccer. As a Piedmont Hills varsity player, she enjoyed the close-knit bond between all the girls. She fondly remembers the team remaining undefeated for 12 consecutive games and how she cried while making a speech at the end-of-the-season banquet.
She began coaching after Jodi asked her to train the MVLASJ 2008 team in winter 2021. From there she became an assistant coach for the MVLASJ HSG team and later, Jodi gave her the opportunity to help coach the 2012 Blue, 2013 Blue, and 2013 White teams. Her current teams include the 2013 Blue, 2013 White, 2014 Blue, and 2014 White. Seeing how happy the 2013 Blue players were when they won league was her favorite coaching memory.
Lexie's coaching is influenced by what she learned growing up. She likes to teach players simple things she didn't learn until she got older. She enjoys when her players have fun while still working hard and loves to see the excitement players have when they master something brand-new. Lexie brings commitment and dedication to the MVLASJ coaching staff. Her favorite “accomplishments” were not missing a single soccer practice in her last two years of playing and returning to coaching just three days after getting ACL reconstruction surgery. She currently holds her USSF 4v4, 7v7, 9v9, and 11v11 licenses.
Lexie enjoys spending time with her family, watching the Philadelphia Eagles, and playing with her dogs, Domino, Ginger, and Ivy. Her favorite soccer team is Tottenham Hotspur, and her favorite player is Son Heung-Min. Jenn Herndon and Jodi Washington are Lexie's greatest inspirations in her coaching career. She's thankful for the relationships she's created with players, parents, and other coaches.
