KAYLA LEE // LEE SIX LASER & DESIGN
WHY I GOT INTO THE BIZ / WHAT INSPIRES ME:
Hi! My name is Kayla Lee, the “wife” in this husband/wife duo that is Lee Six Laser & Design. We are a local, homegrown, husband and wife, laser engraving and graphic design company housed out of Olympia, Washington. We pride ourselves in making custom, creative and meaningful designs that make you, and those you share them with, blissfully happy. When we can – we promote and support our network of small businesses in the Olympia area, making our local economy grow! We also really love the earth! So, whenever possible, we use recycled and eco-friendly materials to create some of the one of kind pieces you see in our shop.
How did we get into laser engraving of all things, you might be wondering? The laser engraver was actually my husband’s idea but the industry allows for so much creativity, which is where I come in. Designing for me is second nature; it is my outlet, my freedom and my passion. I got into the design business because I truly believe in its power. I believe in the creative spirit and the influence that it brings to people's lives, personally and professionally. What gave us the real push to pursue starting our own business were our four girls, YES FOUR! Our girls are everything to us; they are our greatest loves and our true inspiration for everything we do. We wanted to make a life for our girls that inspired them and showed them that with hard work and a dream they really can do anything. Last year, at the age of 29 and with my husband's support, I decided to quit my steady 9-5 job so I could follow this passion of ours. I also get the added bonus of staying home with our four wonderful, crazy and beautiful reminders of how lucky we are. We really are blessed to be "living the American dream".
Me in a nutshell: coffee addict, night owl, creative soul, vintage/antique lover, and book enthusiast. I believe in Karma and being kind to others. I wear my heart on my sleeve and my cell phone rarely leaves my side.
