Lex is a graduate from the University of Nebraska Lincoln (UNL). She earned her bachelor’s degree in Psychology with minors in Business and in Child, Youth and Family Studies. As part of her college curriculum, Lex had the opportunity to volunteer as a mentor/coach at an elementary school in Lincoln. She, and a team of three other UNL students, lead a group of elementary students in an after-school “Kids Fit Club” where they engaged in fun fitness activities and games in order to prevent and address childhood obesity. She was a high jumper on the track and field team her sophomore year and continued with her passion for sports her junior year by playing intermural tennis.
Since graduating from UNL in 2017, Lex has been working as a Sales Associate for Orangetheory Fitness in South Lincoln. She was a fit model and online model for Buckle from 2017 to 2018. Lex is also currently an online trainer and an Advocare Distributor. Her love for health and fitness has guided her goal to impact as many lives as possible, and support others as they strive to be the best version of themselves.
Health and fitness have always been woven into nearly all aspects of Lex’s life. She grew up following in her dad’s athletic footsteps and her mom’s healthy cooking and eating habits. Lex’s father played college and professional football and her mother has run several successful small businesses, including a gluten-free cookie company, and a company that sells cooking accessories, and is currently the founder and executive director of the Twin Cities Lyme Foundation.
Lex hopes that the Miss Nebraska USA platform will lead to awareness and advancements in the Lyme Disease community for faster and more accurate diagnoses as well as treatments. She also wishes to bring light to the benefits of a healthy lifestyle for all people, whether or not they are battling illness.
