“I have all good things to say about Rebecca Minger and her work. Rebecca helped me prepare for my first state pageant in the Miss America system. She helped me with interview skills, walking, talent, wardrobe choices, and every other aspect of the competition. The week of state, I knew I was ready and didn’t have to be nervous about not feeling prepared. Throughout the week, Rebecca was so encouraging and would even send motivational texts every morning to make the long week easier.
She also helped me so much with my makeup. Before her help, I was a pageant girl who was lucky if her eyeliner was even. Now, I am able to confidently do a full face of makeup for both the stage and everyday. She knows exactly how to highlight individual’s features and knows how to help with any personal insecurities. Not only does she do pageant makeup, but I have seen her work for weddings, appearances, and many other events firsthand. I would recommend Rebecca to anyone, knowing they would get the training they needed.”
“Becky walked alongside my MAO journey from start to finish, and her continual support and expertise were invaluable. Her firsthand knowledge of the competition process and her ability to teach individualized strategies in a relatable, encouraging manner created in me a more empowered and well-versed leader, both on and off stage.
As a young professional, I find myself still utilizing the public speaking, poise, and leadership skills that Becky helped fine-tune in me a few years back, and I know I will continue doing so for years to come. I’m incredibly grateful for the investment Becky made in my journey and the sweet friendship that has resulted. She is a true gem!”

“Working with Becky has been an unforgettable journey. Not only is she truly an expert at what she does, but she also fully invests herself into her clients. I have gained confidence and a well-developed skill set to achieve success both in pageantry and in life. I am proud to call Becky my mentor, greatest role model, and most importantly, my friend.”

“Working with Becky has been wonderful. Our daughter was so well prepared for her first state competition in the Miss America Organization and we are so grateful for all of the support, wealth of information, and time Becky gave of herself during those months of preparation. We feel that our daughter, and our family has a special friend/family member for life!”
- Mike & Kim – local titleholder parents
“Becky was able to immediately grasp what we wanted to accomplish with our new titleholders, both Teen and Miss. She was able to draw upon her experience, utilize her resourcefulness and creativity to help us transform our title holders from stunning to winners. Your makeup and hair recommendations were spot on! Great job Miss Minger.”
- RLJ – MAO Executive Director
“I cannot say enough great things about Becky. She helped me to bring out my individuality and personal best with every phase of competition and made sure that my all-important mental game was so strong that nothing shook my confidence during pageant weekend! Her interview training skills and paperwork development are unlike any I have experienced. I had the best interview of my life because I was 100% myself and prepared for Every. Single. Question! Plus, Becky was there all weekend to do my hair/makeup/styling and it made me feel so confident – I got compliments all weekend on how great I looked this year!
This was my last pageant and I truly wish that I would have found Becky earlier! I can only imagine how competitive I could have been if I started working with her years ago! I was more comfortable and enjoyed this pageant more than any other I’ve competed in, because I was READY. She helped me grow as a competitor and a woman, and has been a great mentor, pageant coach, and friend since day one of our preparation. I can’t thank her enough. She is responsible for the best performance I have ever had in a pageant, along with teaching me life skills that I will keep forever.”
- Lehanna – Miss Virginia USA Semi-Finalist
“As a parent, don’t you want to do everything you can to help your daughter be successful, not just in the pageant world, but the real world? If your answer is yes, then you’re in the right place! Becky is a dynamic, well-seasoned, hard working coach and 110% dedicated to your daughter’s success and growth not just for the competition, but beyond. She sees the “big picture” and helps your daughter to be confident in who she is so that she can express it both on and off stage.
Leading up to the competition, Becky is constantly working, thinking, and planning down to every detail to make sure all of the pieces come together and EVERYTHING is exactly the way it needs to be, when it needs to be! I got to spend quite a bit of time with Becky during pageant weekend downtime, and let me tell you, she’s amazing! Our experience with her was above and beyond what I imagined, not to mention my daughter placed as a semi-finalist with more confidence than she’s ever had!”
- Contestant parent – Gwen
“As a family new to pageants and the Miss America Organization, I was excited about all that Becky brought to the table. This year my daughter went from a Teen contestant to a ‘Miss’. We started working with Becky only a couple months before her first local MAO pageant, but she was able to get my daughter ready in a very short amount of time. She quickly identified the areas that needed improvement and worked on every aspect of competition, especially interview. Not only did my daughter win her first local, but also brought home the overall interview and swimsuit awards! The results are proof that her work with Becky paid off.
Becky’s real life experience as a titleholder and her training in communications is invaluable. She has just the right balance of discipline, practicality and encouragement with no sugar coating. Being able to relate to my daughter as a contestant and a former titleholder made a huge difference in her preparedness and confidence level – especially as a young, new contestant. Not only did my daughter benefit from our time together, but I’ve also learned how to better support my daughter on this journey. I would highly recommend Becky for pageant contestants or professionals!”
