After working in the beauty industry, marketing and player development in the casino industry and at an interior design firm, I finally took the leap to follow my passion and start my own business. I now specialize in Personal/Brand Development and Image Consulting, working with professionals and pageant participants alike. I help clients with personal development, building their brands and resumes, nailing interviews and presentation skills and streamlining their style to create an impactful image. In pageantry, the Journey and the Job of being a titleholder is something I have always been passionate about. I'm proud to have coached multiple Miss, Teen and Jr. Teen winners and top 5 finalists, finalists at Miss USA/Teen USA, as well as interview, swimsuit and talent winners. I'm thrilled that my clients have gone on to become news anchors, VP's of firms, law students, models, entrepreneurs, Naval Officers and so much more to come! To me, that's really what my job is all about!
When I was 18 I competed in my first pageant, Miss Ohio Teen USA, and I placed in the top 5. I then competed for Miss Ohio (America) placing First Runner-Up 3 times, before earning the job on my 5th try, and ultimately competing in the 90th Anniversary Miss America Pageant. My year as Miss Ohio took me over 40,000 miles across the country traveling as a public speaker and performer, and advocating and lobbying for my personal platform, as well as Military initiatives. I was also the national spokesperson for a military support organization called "The Thank You Foundation". After my year of service, I competed for the title of Miss Ohio USA and placed in the top 5 two more times before "retiring" from the pageant stage.
I graduated from Bowling Green State University earning my degree in Interpersonal Communications and a minor in Political Science. Throughout my life I was always involved in the arts and gained valuable performance experience, decades of vocal, piano and dance lessons and art hobbies. While working with my team, I experienced intensive training in communications and brand building.
I am a traveling makeup artist with over a decade of experience in the cosmetics and beauty industry. I specialize in Pageant styling (Pre-Teens to Mrs. for competitions, events and photoshoots), Bridal and Special Occasion styling. I’m honored to have been a makeup artist backstage at Miss USA and Miss Teen USA and I am a certified makeup artist with The Perfect Face Cosmetics. I also offer special occasion styling and makeup lessons.
