While Lexie graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatrical Lighting Design, she has always had a passion for animals. Growing up in San Diego, CA, she had many outdoor cat friends and multiple childhood dogs, fish, cockatiels, and a desert tortoise who is currently almost 18 years old! When she moved to a small town outside of Madison, WI, she continued nurturing her love for animals by volunteering at the local humane society and pet sitting whenever possible. Beginning at NSVH as a greeter during her last semester of college was a blessing in disguise. She feels like she is still in school with how much she learns everyday at the clinic.

P.S You can find her still designing lights at a theatre near you!
