My mother put me in my first beauty pageant at the age of two. While that wasn’t my choice at the time, as I got older, being involved in pageantry became a sincere passion of mine. In other words, I caught the “pageant bug” that would stay with me to this day. The speaking skills, poise and countless other character-building qualities pageantry competition has gifted me have become an impactful part of my everyday life and the woman I’ve become.
In 2017, I realized that the perfect way to merge my 25+ years of positive pageantry experiences as a competitor, judge and coach, my desire to pay it forward to our next generations of charismatic and well-rounded women and girls, and my business school education in entrepreneurship was to create my own pageant system…
and Modern American Miss™ was born.
It is my objective that “MAM” will provide a meaningful experience for every contestant, titleholder, director, staff and family member who participates in the system. With this in mind, I am building a strong, capable team of leaders at the state level in order to achieve that mandate and I’m supremely confident in the steps I've taken thus far. I am so honored to be able to share my vision with the world of pageantry and grateful to my recently hired and future state directors for their willingness to join me on what I know will be a fulfilling and successful journey.
