Meet Kinsey Ray

My name is Kinsey Ray, commonly known as the Mermaid Queen! I was born and raised in Salt Lake City Utah, where I met my husband Taylor in 2012 and we got married in 2018. I love that our relationship is growth oriented, we help push and inspire each other to continue working towards becoming the best version of ourselves. We’ve ran over 1,000 miles together, completed 75 hard and traveled all over the world creating incredible memories. We added a new adventure buddy to our family June 2022, as we welcomed our son Roman into the world.

I was a professional model for a decade, I used my marketing and branding skills from my career to transition into the business world in 2016. I now lead a multimillion-dollar sales organization called the Mermaid Gang, where we specialize in helping women grow their best hair. I coach and train people on how to have more confidence to unlock their potential and grow in every area of life.

But the thriving business woman, wife and mother you see today isn’t who I’ve always been.

When I was 15 years old I was consumed with darkness as I experienced my first battle with depression. I felt alone and I didn’t know how to process these emotions in a healthy way, so I turned to self-harm as a way to cope.
This experience left me with hundreds of scars on my legs and long journey of healing ahead of me. I remember during my season of struggling with self-harm, I prayed every day to find a woman like me to give me hope to keep going. A woman who had struggled like me, she had scars like me, but she had made it through her season of darkness. She had healed, she was happy, and she had made peace with her past.

I never found that woman, so instead I became her.
I became a woman that proves your past doesn’t have to define your future.

I’ve spent over a decade growing my brand online, sharing my story and educating people on the importance of taking care of your mental health. My social media content has reached millions of people and made a huge impact to let those struggling know they aren’t alone.

My platform Happier Days is focused on breaking down the stigma around self-harm and teaching people how to create healthy emotional coping skills to take control of their mental health in a positive way. My goal is to equip people with tools and strategies to create strong habits to overcome any challenge in life. Trauma, tragedy, grief, it happens to all of us. I am educating people how to navigate life’s challenges in the best way possible.

Regardless of what season you may be in, my hope is to inspire you to do the work to unlock your potential and step into your power. You are full of infinite potential with unique gifts inside of you. I want to equip you with strategies on how to create a winning mindset and strong habits to have happier days, develop more confidence, and help you become the best version of yourself while in pursuit of your goals.
