A Little About Me:
Hi Timberwolves fans; my name is Lexi. Here is a little bit about myself. I grew up dancing since I was 3 years old in Manakto, MN. My dance teacher then inspired me to continue dance throughout college, where I danced on the UWEC dance team. I graduated college with a Spanish Liberal Arts degree. I knew I wasn’t ready to give up dancing, so I continued by teaching classes at a local studio and auditioned to become a Timberwolves dancer. I have loved living in Minneapolis and being on the team, I have met so many great girls and life-long friends.

Although it seems dance is my whole life, I do enjoy many other things in the little spare time that I have I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I have a very close-knit family, I couldn’t do without the loving support of my parents, and my sister is my best friend!

I love to laugh, and think my sense of humor is one of my greatest qualities. Going out to eat and trying new foods is also a love of mine, and could be one of my favorite weekend activities. You can usually find my TV on the food network, I wouldn’t say I’m the greatest cook, but I try. I love the seasons in Minnesota, and would say fall is my favorite. I enjoy the summer for obviously the weather, and love spending summer days on a boat or at a lake. I’m also a big fan of holidays; you will find my apartment pretty decked-out for Halloween and Christmas. I’ve already busted-out the Christmas music, and had 3 different Halloween costumes this year, haha.

I am looking forward to another great year with the Wolves and can't wait to get the season rollin!
