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

Hi Nessa, what’s the most difficult decision you’ve ever had to make?
My divorce and moving on with my next chapter life will be so much easier just me and my baby girl but hands down the hardest decision I’ve ever made.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I’ve changed my whole modeling path from more conservative to a little more free and I’m proud of it because I used to have body image issues. I’ve come such a long way. I’m super proud. For me I’m now a lone wolf. I do very little group shoots because I’m not down for the drama so it has been easy. Lessons I’ve learned is you’ll lose people along the way but dont you dare lose yourself. My brand is for those not yet ready to spread their wings for now I’m embracing myself through modeling when they’re ready they will too.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We’re most definitely going to the zoo. Phoenix zoo is one of my favorite places. For lunch, Rosa’s mexican food because it’s my favorite. The salt river is also fun. I’m a homebody so we’d also be doing stuff at home (most of my bffs are). But for me the most exciting thing is the dino museum and the science center are my two favorite places to hang out along with downtown phoenix lots of places to model down there.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Three very important people. I call him my best friend, his real name is Logan robb. I’ve known him for a year and he’s literally the light of my life. He’s a kind soul and I love him dearly. The second is Kylee Guilliam. We get each other on a level that is super deep and complex. I’ve not been able to have it with anyone else and she’s definitely more than a friend she’s family.
