Victoria Elise is a model and stock trader who has appeared in prominent publications the likes of Maxim, Sports Illustrated, Esquire, FHM, Askmen, and Mandatory.
When Victoria isn’t modeling, she works as a part-time daytrader while going to school for Business Administration/Economics at University of Nevada Las Vegas.
Wanting to do something with the money she made from modeling work, Victoria put her burgeoning economics knowledge to understand stocks. It started off with a purchase of BRK Class B stock and practicing with trading platform ThinkorSwim. That has allowed her to build instincts and work daytrading while still in school. Victoria is currently under a mentorship with a trader. She plans to pursue an MBA in Healthcare Administration come January 2020.
Victoria was a semi-finalist in ‘Maxim’s Finest’ competition and finalist as a ‘Hometown Hottie’. More recently, she was featured on Paramount Network’s hit reality series Bar Rescue.
Originally from El Paso, Texas, Victoria calls Las Vegas home with her cocker spaniel, Todd. When she isn’t busy with school or daytrading, Victoria can be found working out with her personal trainer, hiking, painting, and going out for sushi. She is of African American, Cherokee, and French decent.
Tell us about your childhood:
At what age did you realized you wanted to be in the entertainment industry? What did you do to move towards that goal?
I never realized it, I kept to myself a lot growing up and was shy. The modeling stuff sort of just happened.
What were some of your favorite childhood activities or hobbies?
I love to draw and play outside. It’s a little too hot to play outside in Vegas but I still enjoy drawing.
What is your favorite memory from your childhood?
I think just being a child and not having to worry about the things adults do is enough!
Tell us about your Personal World:
When you’re not working, how do you spend your free time?
I’m a huge homebody and love to spend time at home with my dog.
What is one of your favorite inspirational quotes?
Sow an act and you reap a habit. Sow a habit and you reap a character. Sow a character and you reap a destiny. – Charles Reade
What are your five- and 10-year goals? Do you want to start a business? Get Married? Buy a home? Retire?
Not really a 5 year goal but more of a this year goal but I’d like to buy a new house, probably be married in 5 years and in 10 years just travel and living my best life with my husband.
What health and/or beauty tips do you swear by?
I definitely swear by keeping your face hydrated and using facial toner. Also, don’t wear makeup so often, it clogs your pores and causes you to breakout. If I’m not shooting or at a big event, I’m most of the time makeup free.
Tell us about your Savoir Faire: Savoir Faire is a brand that is built around the concept that, “Confidence is a Lifestyle”. The following questions will be about this topic.
What is your personal definition of the word Confidence?
My personal definition of confidence is to accept yourself as who you are and feel comfortable in your own skin.
Was there ever a moment that you doubted your abilities and how did you over come that?
I doubt myself all the time but I always put my best foot forward and things turn out better than I thought!
Do you feel more confident when your working or in your personal world?
I definitely feel more confident when I’m working.
Do you feel comfortable engaging with a group of people? Do you listen to or lead the conversation?
I never like engaging with groups of people but you learn to get over it. I tend to listen more and only lead if I have to.
