I am a small town country girl from Kingston, Washington. I got started in modeling when I was only seven years old after begging my parents for 3 years. I knew exactly what I wanted to be at a young age. Growing up in Washington there wasn't much of an entrainment industry here so I did every stage, modeling and pageant opportunity I could get my hands on to try to fill my resume. By 19 I packed up my car and was headed for Hollywood. I loved being on film sets, getting paid to fulfill your dreams really was a huge accomplishment to me. After ten years of Hollywood I got married and decided to retire to Washington to raise my two little girls. World Class American Royalty Magazine: Please tell us about your education.
I am in the process of completing a degree in Psychology at the moment. The last few years I have really noticed a decline in our mental health care system mostly because there isn't enough staff to fill those very needed spots. I want to try to make a difference in counseling those who have lost their way and are struggling. I am currently certified as a professional makeup artist, I have 12 years of music vocal education and 4 years of interning under a fashion photographer. World Class American Royalty Magazine: What does women Empowerment means to you?
To me it means not only loving yourself for who you are and having that confidence, but I believe the other huge part of female empowerment is spreading the confidence to others. treating others. Uplifting others. Spreading that confidence and self love. World Class American Royalty Magazine: Tell us about your pageant history.
I fell in Love with Miss America at a very young age. One of my favorite things growing up was going to local pageants with my aunt, she really sparked that passion in me, even buying my first pageant wardrobe for me. I ran for my 1st scholarship pageant at age 15 and won Miss Kingston 2002. As soon as my title was up I started running for a Miss America local and ended up winning the Title of the 50th Miss Pouslbo only four months after giving up my title as Miss Kingston. Serving my community as Miss Kingston and Miss Poulsbo really meant so much to me. I Ran for Miss Washington in 2004 being only 17! I took sometime away from pageantry but always knew I wanted to come give back by volunteering and passing on my knowledge one day. Fast forward about 20 years, I am on the board of my local for Miss America primary the Miss West Sound Evergreen Program, I run a Miss America Princess program and I not only volunteer my makeup, knowledge and photography skills but I am also a World Title holder at the moment. I was crowned 2023 World United 30's.
World Class American Royalty Magazine: What inspired you to do your first pageant?
Watching Miss America as a very small child on TV, my aunt, scholarship and stage experience.
World Class American Royalty Magazine: Why did you choose to compete for your current title?
I chose to run for USA World United because I honestly wanted a personal reset, I wanted to get back to myself and I feel pageantry really helps you do that. I'm always doing so much for others I wanted to do something for myself. I also ran because I was recently diagnosed with colon cancer and wanted to start marking things off my bucket list. I said to myself if you don't know how much time you have you better make it count! Honestly there really are a million reasons why I ran for Libby Crawford's pageant!!! I love the new form of pageantry she has created and I'm all about empowering women and I knew USA World United would give me that opportunity.
World Class American Royalty Magazine: To those unfamiliar with your pageant system please tell us what is it about?
Pageantry is all about becoming and showcasing the best version of yourself. Pageantry is also helping others to also achieve self growth and self love. For me I will always be thankful to pageantry because with the scholarships I earned through Miss America I was able to pay for my 1st few years in college. Without the Miss America program college wouldn't have been a possibility for me. The other thing that Pageantry really defines and teaches is the importance of Community and giving back. World Class American Royalty Magazine: What makes your director different from others?
She is overwhelmingly generous, she has such a huge heart, and she does so much for others! I am so thankful and blessed to have her in my life. World Class American Royalty Magazine: What are you being judged on during the competition?
Interview, which community service was huge in this pageant, personal style, fitness and evening gown.
World Class American Royalty Magazine: Tell us about your experience during the competition.
My experience was Absolutely amazing, in this program it's more about bonding with the other contestants. We got totally spoiled being taken to all the nice restaurants in the area we were in. We got to go on a tour of the Columbia River and the Oregon Trail which was my favorite part. We had an 80's movie night. Let me just say the memories and friendships I made at USA World United will last forever!
World Class American Royalty Magazine: Who would you recommend your system to?
Any woman who wants to not only highlight her platform but USA World United is really for everyone wanting to make friendships and lasting memories. It's super fun because there are so many different categories, teen, 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's 60's and Mother Daughter.

Shock, Joy, Happiness no matter how hard I work in competing I'm always humble and literally shocked when I win.

Grace, Style and service is what a beauty queen is to me. Someone who emulates confidence and positivity. I true beauty queen gives back to others in need with sparkle and beauty even in the hardest of volunteer activities she never loses that royal glow. She uses her title to not only better the world around her but to also give others the faith that dreams really do come true if you never give up.
World Class American Royalty Magazine: How did competing in pageants helped your life?
It changed my life forever. Through the Miss America organization I was taught life lasting interview skills, confidence and how to be a lady. Pageants also changed my life by paying for my education. Miss America has and still does open so many doors for me. And now my daughters are involved in the program and have grown so much.
World Class American Royalty Magazine: How did pageants helped your self esteem and body image?
Pageants made me be proud of who I am inside and out. I feel like pageants make you really dip deep and learn exactly who you are and how to love and improve every part of you. Pageants also taught me how to stay physically active into old age to where I'm almost 40 and get mistaken for 26 all the time. Pageants also taught me mental health is just as important as physical.
World Class American Royalty Magazine: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel?
Out of this World! Every time I'm told I inspired someone, my heart literally wants to explode.
World Class American Royalty Magazine: What is your on stage strategy to win the judges over?
A bright smile, Confidence and eye contact is my biggest on stage strategy but my biggest off stage is comfort. If your traveling for a pageant I make sure I bring my own food, pillow and toiletries so you are calm and collected for competition. One of my biggest pageant helpers are vitamin shakes and a weighted blanket.
World Class American Royalty Magazine: How did you prepare for your competition?
I work out a lot doing 15 miles a week on my treadmill, I make sure I'm totally in love with my wardrobe so my personality and confidence can shine on stage. I also try to get any paperwork done way ahead of time so the days before I leave for the pageant are as stress free as possible.
World Class American Royalty Magazine: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk?
Learn what works for you and your body type. Make sure you always practice in your shoes before competing in them. It's not about what you're wearing but how you wear it, you can compete in a $20 dress and win with the right confidence and flair.
World Class American Royalty Magazine: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress?
Choosing the right dress is all about how you feel in it. Do you feel gorgeous? Do you feel like a title holder? Does it fit? really make sure it's the right length because tripping on stage is the worst thing ever!!! Lastly do you feel 100% yourself in the dress?
World Class American Royalty Magazine: What are your tips for winning interview?
Be yourself!!!! There are no wrong answers in an interview they want to know you and your opinions and accomplishments. Take a breath and just remember it is just a conversation, a conversation about you. Let your light shine!
World Class American Royalty Magazine: What is one mistake that you've done during competing you wish you could redo and fix it?
I answered an onstage question really bad on the Miss Washington stage when I was 17, I was so nervous!!! I wish I would have answered it differently.
World Class American Royalty Magazine: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest?
Not at USA World United but in the past I have seen contests and parents being rude to volunteers and that's one of the worst things in pageantry you can do. As a volunteer most of the time we only get paid in Thank you cards. So when a volunteer is harassed by contestants or parents it breaks my heart.
World Class American Royalty Magazine: Any modeling or acting experience?
I started modeling when I was seven years old, I've been in entrainment for 30 years now. I've been in a little bit of everything from Glee, Grey's Anatomy, MTV. I was on the Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency Show, multiple shows for MTV but my favorite shoots were Zombie movies. I loved having all that crazy makeup put on and getting to "fake" attack people was so fun!
World Class American Royalty Magazine: What are your plans for 2023 as a Queen?
To really push my platform, and make a difference. I also want to bring more women into USA World United because I really think it is my favorite pageant program.
World Class American Royalty Magazine: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?
When I found out I was sick, I realized that I might not have as much time as I thought I would, so I wanted my legacy to be a gift of knowledge . I want to literally give away every Hollywood secret I've learned so others may grow and be the best version of themselves. When I leave this world I want people to tell my girls what a difference I made.
