We had the good fortune of connecting with Alexis Nicole and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alexis, what role has risk played in your life or career?
In my opinion, nothing great happens with some sort of risk. I took a lot of risks with my career especially putting my self out there with starting my Youtube channel. I had no idea where it would take me but I am so glad that did because the rewards have greatly outweighed my initial risk.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I have been a registered nurse for over 3 years now and recently have switched over to my dream specialty of being a neonatal intensive care unit nurse. The entire experience of becoming a nurse was anything but easy. Not knowing if I would be accepted into any nursing program was stressful enough. Looking back I’m so thankful for every road block I hit on the way to becoming a nurse because it created such a resiliency in me. The entire experience helped me grow in not only in knowledge but also confidence.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Some of my favorite places in the city include Hermann park, Cuchara and Mad (the decor is amazing).

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would love to shout out every single one of my viewers who has made my growth possible. I receive so my love and inspiration from the people that watch my videos and continue to motivate me to move forward with my content creation.
