We can name many servant leaders in our life time, but I discovered through attending Legacy Maker Academy, that I am surrounded by servant leaders in my daily life. My biological father was a minster his entire life, my biological mom served her church as well, my adopted dad served in the military and as an elected sheriff and my adopted mom still serves with Co- Serve International teaching servant leadership in second world countries. To carry on the tradition of servant leadership my first act as Queen was to remove my crown and have my head shaved on the national stage to empower those fighting cancer. Currently, I am working with NEGU.ORG to organize a run to sponsor JOY JARS for children 0-18 fighting cancer. Additionally, I serve as Co- Director for Idaho Miss Amazing, helping girls and women with disabilities build self-esteem.

World Class American Royalty Magazine: Tell us about the moment your name was called out as the winner. I was speechless and burst into tears and so very humbled and grateful.

World Class American Royalty Magazine: What does it mean to you to be a Beauty Queen? When I was about 6 years old, I watched Miss America take the stage and Miss Universe crowned. That was when a tiny seed was planted in my heart. As I began to compete, the meaning of pageant became more than grace and beauty. To be crowned is to have an opportunity to leave a legacy of leadership and inspiration that comes from the soul. With that crown comes a profound responsibility to life as a servant.

World Class American Royalty Magazine: How did competing in pageants helped your life? Pageant competition gave me the courage to stand up and stand out in all areas of my life not just on the stage. To reach for more than success, but to achieve what you dream.

World Class American Royalty Magazine: How did pageants helped your selfesteem and body image? Pageantry has corrected the negative body image I had of myself as a young girl where I fought an eating disorder. As a grown woman it had always haunted me that I was never good enough. I found my strength to overcome both the body image issue and low self-esteem through pageantry.

World Class American Royalty Magazine: You are an inspiration to all the girls out there. How does it feel? It feels incredibly humbling and weighty as a responsibility to inspire not only my own daughters to achieve their goals, but I want all daughters of this world to know you can do anything you set your mind to dream Further, my desire is that all girls and women learn to celebrate their God-given uniqueness.

World Class American Royalty Magazine: What is your on stage strategy to win the judges over? It is normal to feel anxious, fearful and nervous, but once you dig deep within yourself and enjoy your time to shine, it shows! The judges want to see the authentic you. Smile Queen is all about you for that moment.

World Class American Royalty Magazine: How did you prepare for your competition? Fitness in mind, body and spirit. Wardrobe and shoes to show my unique flair and practice, practice, practice.

World Class American Royalty Magazine: What are your tips for learning better pageant walk? I watched Miss Universe pageants on You tube, over and over. My husband was great coach, I think he may do the swimsuit walk better than I do! Lol

World Class American Royalty Magazine: What are your tips for choosing right pageant dress? The best dress isn’t always the most expensive, it’s the dress that makes you feel beautiful and like a queen. Once you have tired it on, you know.

World Class American Royalty Magazine: What are your tips for winning interview? This is where your heart shines. Do not be a pageant Patty! Be yourself! Judges want to know your heart, show it to them tears and all. Always be concise and genuine and do not ramble. Again... practice and more practice. World Class American Royalty Magazine: What is one mistake that you've done during competing you wish you could redo and fix it? Only one? There are many looking back at my competitions. We learn as we grow in pageants just as everything else in this life. One thing not to skimp on is hair and make-up. great artist will accentuate your assets and you will feel more confident,.

World Class American Royalty Magazine: What other mistakes are made by girls during the contest? Picking out the errors of others is not something I do well. I will say poor sportsmanship has no place in pageantry.


World Class American Royalty Magazine: Any modeling or acting experience? Hosting my own TV program, TV commercials for non-profit organizations, modeling both print and run-way.


World Class American Royalty Magazine: What are your plans for 2023 as a Queen? My reign will last until 2025, as it an international title. I plan to help women find their legacy through the United USA National Pageants, and Legacy Maker Academy, where I will teach business leadership and legacy. My new coaching site: Mind Body Business for Life. Is under construction and will be available by January. This year my goal is to be in several more magazines and hit the runway in several fashion weeks around the country bringing awareness to my NEGU.org, cancer and Miss Idaho Amazing.

World Class American Royalty Magazine: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind? My legacy of servant leadership is defined as L.O.V.E; Leading Others to Victory Eternally. I have chosen FAITH to be my legacy. The definition of legacy is something that is passed on, but it can take many forms. My desire is for each woman to have faith in herself and her uniqueness. She will recognize that everyday tasks from raising her children to running a business or her great recognized accomplishments (such as wearing a crown) will take her closer to finding her legacy. This is not where she ends, but begins. Through my reign I want women around the world to find their legacy and shine like the beautiful diamonds they are meant to be.
