Kim Alexis was born in upstate New York. Always competitive, Kim was deeply involved in junior high and high school athletics, and is a marathoner. She originally had planned a career in pharmacology.
At the age of 18 she was "discovered" by the Elite Talent Agency. She soon moved to New York City and thus began an unbelievable career in the modeling industry.
Alexis was one of the top models of the 1980's, identified along with Gia Carangi, Carol Alt, Christie Brinkley, Kelly Emberg, Iman, and Paulins Parizkova. In 1983 she became the face of Revlon's premium Ultima II line, replacing Lauren Hutton. She was featured in countless TV and print ads, and graced the cover of over 500 magazines, not to mention six appearances in the coveted Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues. In fact, it's as though the term "supermodel" was coined to describe her.
More than just a model, Kim parlayed her good looks and bright mind into other opporunities, including broadcast journalism, where she hosted several television shows on the Family Channel and Lifetime, as well as film and TV acting. She appeared in the 1998 movie Holy Man with Eddie Murphy. In 2005, she appeared on VH1's reality competition "But Can They Sing"?
As her career has progressed, she's never lost her love for fitness. In recent years, she's focused on health and wellness issues for women, specifically by developing several fitness aids.
