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. Now I work with clients nationwide specializing in Personal/Brand Development and Image Consulting. I help clients with personal development, building their brands and resumes, nailing interviews and presentation skills, stage presence 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 work closely with multiple Miss USA state programs and have been honored to be a part of the journeys of numerous State and National winners and finalists, including Miss USA 2021, and Miss Universe top 10 finalists - Elle Smith. I'm thrilled that my clients have gone on to become successful news anchors, VP's of firms, law students, models, entrepreneurs, Naval Officers and so much more! 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 where I placed in the top 5. I then competed for Miss Ohio (America) placing First Runner-Up 3 times, before earning the job and title on my 5th try, ultimately representing Ohio 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 with a minor in Political Science. Throughout my life, I was always involved in the arts and gained valuable performance experience through decades of vocal, piano and dance lessons and art hobbies. I also have extensive pageant and professional training in communications and brand building.
As a professional makeup artist, I travel the country styling hair and makeup at local, state and national competitions for contestants raging from elementary to Mrs. Divisions. I’m honored to have been a makeup artist backstage at Miss USA and Miss Teen USA! I also offer Bridal and Special Occasion styling and have even been featured in BRIDES magazine! Additionally, I am a certified makeup artist with The Perfect Face Cosmetics and offer special occasion styling and makeup lessons.
