Hi. I’m Lexi. I’m a compassionate leader trying to make journalism more essential, useful and accessible.
Currently a senior editor at The Philadelphia Inquirer, I lead our newsletter portfolio and digital storytelling efforts. I was recruited here to help oversee our digital producer team.
In 2016, I launched The Incline, a Pittsburgh start-up committed to delivering actionable local journalism. At the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, I covered local government, crime, courts, and breaking news. During my senior year at Penn State, I ran The Daily Collegian during the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
I’m most proud of having spoken at SXSW, launching The Incline, and being a member of the 2017 cohort of the Online News Association’s Women’s Leadership Accelerator.
Otherwise, I can be found listening to an audiobook while walking my rescued poodle, Pepper, or trying to organize everything in my bullet journal.
