Monique LeClair Shares a Different Side of Her Multi-Venture Life

Too many times, society tends to put people in a box. We’re forced to be one thing and not another. But one inspirational personality is proving that you can be whoever you want to be if you put your heart and soul into it. So now she’s sharing that story with the rest of the world.

Monique LeClair, also known by many as Nick, is a Native American, a full-time nurse in school to become a nurse practitioner, mother, model, and successful actress. In addition, she is a multi-talented host, writer and passionate humanitarian. This amazing woman has a child named Nova Lee Jasper LeClair, born November 15, 2019, and is also the daughter of musician and songwriter Cody Alan Jasper.

The passionate humanitarian wanted to help people at a very early age. However, her family acknowledged that she was always that kid who would always have a heart toward others. One of the fondest childhood memories she had was when she would bring possums off the side of the road after being hit by a car. 

“I was that girl and always helped other family members when they were sick. And compassion and empathy have always come naturally to me”, says the outstanding nurse. As a result, the successful actress grew up as a kind-hearted individual, which allowed her to serve and lead in different ways. 

Monique LeClair’s versatility started when she was still young. Growing up, she was an athlete and was also the only girl on the all-boys varsity wrestling team in high school. In addition, she did weight lifting, tennis, and volleyball.  “I wanted to go into sports medicine, but, when I was about eleven years old, I lost my dad to cancer. He had colon cancer, you know, that had metastasized. And he passed away at the age of 38. And I was eleven. And he had some wonderful nurses that just changed his life and changed my life and made his last few months very comfortable and memorable”, recalls Monique.

Monique LeClair believes touching other people’s lives, in the same way, is a great privilege for her. Being a nurse puts her in a position to help in the most vulnerable hours of people. 

“Aside from being a mother, it is an amazing human experience, so it’s gratifying,” says the compassionate nurse. Monique LeClair became a nurse at the age of 20, and so she started taking College credits before she graduated from high school. She graduated with honors like the National Honor Society in high school, had some college credits, and went straight into the program after high school. She has been a nurse for about twelve years now.

LeClair believes that discovering and pursuing one’s passions are essential to success. “I think the most important thing you have to remember in life is to be true to yourself,” explains Nick. “You have to follow your passions. Of course, you will come across bumps along the way and obstacles. But you just have to know that everything in life happens for a reason. So I have a very diverse and colorful background, but I’m proud of every bit of that I’ve known.”
