Lexie was born and raised as a military child and lived all over the world with her family. Moving created an opportunity for Lexie to be exposed to different cultures, develop a love of all international foods, and embrace the concept that people are more similar than different. Now, as a military spouse for over 12 years, Lexie still thoroughly enjoys traveling and going on new adventures with her husband, and has taught her own “military” children to savor the adventures! She is an energetic relationship builder, enthusiastic serial volunteer & event coordinator, & passionate about veteran, spouse, & military family advocacy. Lexie Coppinger was most recently the Program Director for the Veteran Pen Pal Project under the nonprofit “It’s A Military Life,” an Army Family Team Building and Spouse Leadership Seminar instructor and a Career Specialist for the nonprofit VetJobs.

She currently lives at Fort Benning, GA with her husband & 3 children as they anticipate a PCS move to Fort Bragg, NC.

As a military spouse, Lexie has held various professional positions ranging from working in the food industry to serving in program lead roles with large nonprofits.  One of her favorite positions was as a Soldier & Family Readiness Support Assistant (SFRSA) for a consistently deployed unit. On her off time, Lexie enjoys volunteering in local community efforts, for Operation Homefront, Blue Star Families, & United Through Reading.
