She Quit Being an ICU Nurse to Make Six Figures on OnlyFans

Entertainment | November 29, 2021

Allie Rae was working in the neonatal intensive care unit of a hospital, tending to sick babies. When they found her OnlyFans, they gave her an ultimatum: delete it or quit.

“Nursing is always where I saw myself,” explains Allie Rae.

Getting there was the hard part. She signed up for the Navy at 17, serving as a yeoman who assisted the admirals and penned awards literature anytime someone received a medal. At 18, she married her husband, and they had two children right away. Rae—who is using her stage name—decided to leave the Navy in 2006, following Hurricane Katrina. She’d been stationed in New Orleans during the disaster, and witnessing the devastation and loss of life firsthand had taken its toll. Following a brief stint in marketing, she enrolled in nursing school, eventually landing in the labor and delivery unit of a top hospital in Massachusetts.

And she soon realized that she had a gift for helping people.

“I started off in labor and delivery, which is where I always wanted to be,” says Rae. “Then I started to realize that anytime something went wrong with a baby I was incredibly nervous, so I made myself shadow in the NICU [neonatal intensive care unit] in order to get past my fear and ended up falling in love with it. I can say with pure confidence that I was a fantastic NICU nurse.”

Rae worked 14-hour days in the neonatal intensive care unit, which she describes as “taxing on my body” and “emotionally draining.” But she loved her work. To blow off steam—and entertain herself—Rae began posting revealing shots of herself on Instagram and The Chive, under the alias “Allie Rae.”
