Hi. I’m Lexi.

I’m the founding editor of The Incline, a news organization committed to delivering relevant, original and actionable local journalism, and a member of the ONA Women’s Leadership Accelerator 2017 cohort.

Since The Incline launched, I’ve led our coverage of local and national elections and the Tree of Life massacre, where I reported from the synagogue while gunfire was still being exchanged.

I previously worked at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, where I covered government, crime, courts and breaking news, including a mass stabbing at a high school, the fatal shooting of a police officer, and the death of a Pittsburgh police K-9 and his killer’s trial.

During my senior year at Penn State University, I served as editor-in-chief of the independent, student-run daily newspaper The Daily Collegian and led internationally read and nationally recognized coverage of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal and the death of former football coach Joe Paterno.

Check out my resume here.

I spend most of my days reading (and editing) news and talking about journalism. Otherwise, I can be found listening to an audiobook while walking my rescued toy poodle, Pepper or trying to organize everything in my bullet journal.
