1 Step 1

Lexie Metzler is a second-year graduate student studying professional counseling- clinical mental health. Not only is she passionate about ending the stigma of mental health and integrating mental health with Catholicism, but she is also discerning the Discalced Carmelite Secular Order and has a devotion to St. Therese of Lisieux! Lexie has a bachelor’s degree in communications, specifically in print journalism and has double minors in public relations and psychology. When she isn’t studying, she can be found playing with her sweet dog Valencia, baking several batches of chocolate chip cookies, or binge-watching true crime documentaries. In addition, she has spent the past two years investigating her family’s lineage and is hoping to travel to Germany where her ancestors are from. Her favorite places are Quebec City and Italy and she is hoping to visit the Holy Land and travel to as many countries in Europe as possible.
