She started playing soccer when she was 5 and played competitively up until college. The coaching director of Coach Olivia's youth club was trained in Brazil, so Coach Olivia grew up playing futsal, small sided games and juggling tennis balls!

Coach Lexy shows her true passion for developing players as athletes, through facilitating a safe, inclusive and fun environment where everyone can feel like they can grow and not be afraid to make mistakes! Her mission is to positively impact communities, and strive to give back as much as possible.
