Meet Lexis Kaye

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lexis Kaye.

Lexis, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I grew up as a small-town girl in Alamogordo, NM with big city dreams. As a little girl, I always had dreams that people thought were out of reach and instead of listening to them tell me my dreams were unattainable, I used it as fuel. I grew up very active, as I danced and played several sports throughout my childhood. The sport I was most passionate about was softball and this sport is what molded and formed many of the character traits I embody today.

I practiced day in and day out and tirelessly worked out in order to get bigger, faster, and stronger. I had a dream, and nothing was getting in my way, I chased it. I received a Division 1 scholarship to play softball at New Mexico State University, where I was a catcher. I cherished every minute of it, both on and off the field. After playing for two years, I was faced with the ultimatum of continuing my softball career or pursuing a career in nursing. When faced with the decision to choose between my long time passion and my newly found passion in the medical field, I made the decision to leave something I worked towards my whole life and take a leap of faith to better my future and obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree at Texas Tech University. I am very fortunate to be able to break generational barriers and have the self-discipline as well as motivation from my family, to set goals and more importantly, to execute them. I am a very proud Latina who is now a first-generation college graduate and looks forward to continuing to create a new path for not only myself but for my family as well.

As I mentioned at the beginning, I come from a small town, but I have always had a big city personality. I was ready to take yet another big leap of faith and move to Los Angeles, California. I was eager to be in a city that matched my work ethic and pace of life, along with strong social platforms. I am now beginning my career in nursing aesthetics as well as pediatrics and look forward to obtaining my master’s degree to become a Nurse Practitioner in the near future. Outside of the medical field, I look forward to creating and building a positive social platform to motivate and inspire others around me. I take great pride in where I am today and where I’m headed, but one thing is for certain, I would not be who I am today without the unconditional love and support from my family as well as the constant motivation and inspiration from those who look up to me.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
With God’s favor, I am very fortunate to say that I was blessed with a great childhood and family who unconditionally supports me. We are all faced with different trials and tribulations, mine just happened to be the small-town mindset of many people who believed I would never realistically “make it”. I knew there would be people who did not support me along my journey, so instead of letting it get to me in a negative way, I used all of that energy to become an all-around better person. I don’t despise envious people; I would rather help them raise themselves up too. There’s enough room for all of us at the top, some people are just not willing to work for it.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I am a Registered Nurse, specializing in aesthetics and pediatrics. Although I have a strong passion for my career, I am looking forward to getting my hands on different projects to continue to broaden my professional scale. I am currently a brand ambassador for Black Pyramid Clothing, which is singer, songwriter, dancer, actor, Chris Brown’s clothing line. I have enjoyed being in front of the camera, so I am currently working on building a strong social platform focused on lifestyle, fashion, and fitness. My constant ambition and unmatched work ethic along with my strong faith are going to take me great places, and I want to bring as many people as I can to the top with me!

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
As I previously mentioned, I am looking forward to continuing my education to become a Nurse Practitioner as well as building a strong social platform. I am currently working behind the scenes and preparing to start a YouTube channel which focuses on lifestyle, fashion, and fitness. I aspire to reach many minds and hearts in efforts of motivating and inspiring other people to becoming a greater version of themselves, along with providing quality entertainment!
