Lesli Kay was born and raised in Charleston, WV. Her mother, Marsha Pushkin Albert, was a sexual abuse therapist and director for the Resolve Family Abuse program at the YWCA in Charleston. Her late father, Dr. Jack Pushkin, was the chief of orthopedics for the Charleston Area Medical Center. Kay began modeling at age 15 and took an internship at MTV when she was 18.
