Lexie Wallace, CFO (Chief Fun Officer)

Alexa Wallace, aka Lexie Wallace, often referred to as “Nick’s awesome sister”, has been with Nick every step of the way. Nick and Lexie founded Nick’s Picks together in 2012 and her input is always invaluable.

“Lexie and I aren’t just brother and sister, we are best friends. We would spend a lot of time talking about what we could do for the other kids in my situation, to help cheer them up and make their hospital stays better. I am so lucky because I have a great sister, not all kids are that lucky, or they have to be far away from their families. ”- Nick

Lexie has always tried to accompany Nick during his long medical appointments, procedures and frequent hospital stays. It was during these trips that Lexie began to draw. In order to help pass the time she would create beautiful pictures and craft objects. A talented artist, Lexie’s love of drawing and creating has continued into a talent for interior design. Lexie’s natural creativity and thoughtful nature have been great assets to Nick’s Picks. It was her idea to incorporate an art set into the girls version of the Nick’s Picks backpacks.
