Alexis (Lexi) started shooting with her dad at a young age and enjoyed going to the range with her family as a bonding activity. While pursuing her bachelor’s degree in Pre-Law Physics, she began shooting international pistol at the University of Utah as a way to make friends. While at the collegiate level, she won a handful of national titles in Women's and Mixed Events as well as earning appointment as a member of several All-American Teams. 

In the beginning, Lexi participated in pistol just for fun, but as Rio 2016 approached she began to realize she wanted to pursue her interest in International Shooting Sports. With great determination, Lexi was able to win the Women’s Air Pistol Olympic Alternate seat for Rio. Narrowly missing the opportunity to join Team USA in 2016 fueled the flames to follow her passion. Despite a degree in physics and a law degree in the works, Lexi can’t shake an Olympic dream so enticing she’s put her career on hold to represent her country in Tokyo 2020.

With a pistol program desperate for success, Lexi represents the next generation of athletes ready to take her sport to a new level. She won her Olympic quota, four gold medals, and one silver medal at the 2018 Championship of the Americas (CAT Games) to help further USA Shooting’s pursuit of excellence.

In addition to visiting the range, Lexi grew up dancing and singing. Amongst other titles, Lexi received a medal and certificate from the White House for singing the National Anthem at more than 150 performances when she was only 14. She enjoys camping and hiking in the mountains, and has a corgi named Guinevere who is featured frequently on Lexi’s Instagram.
