Here at the Mrs. Galaxy 2013 Pageant-Orlando, FL 7/28/2012

Here's my story...
Over the past decade, I have made lasting friends and memories by participating and directing pageants. Contrary to popular belief of "pageants", my experiences have taught me many skills, tips, and tricks in addition to just "looking the part" that have become some of my best attributes of who I am today. I have spent much of my time researching the do's and don'ts of pageants and how the pageant systems differentiate themselves. This has led me to become a coach/mentor to many who are competing in pageants.
My experiences from competing in pageants and as a title holder have allowed me to achieve a higher level of personal growth. I have been trained and coached for every pageant I have entered and learned more about myself each time. My journey into the pageant world has led me to much success which has carried over in my professional career. I attribute much of my diligence, humility, demeanor, and faith to my life experiences both good and bad that I know we can all attest to. My years spent as a competitive Irish Dancer for the Dennehy School, a News Anchor/Reporter/Intern with WWIR News and WGN-TV 9, an Advertising Representative with the Chicago Sun-Times, and as Senior Medical Sales Representative/Trainer have helped perfect my competitive edge with interview skills and stage presence. I share my knowledge from my pageant and professional experiences into my coaching lessons.
Some of my hobbies include public speaking; working out with my husband; creating new “looks” for hair, makeup, wardrobe; trying new recipes from the Food Network; DIY arts & crafts from HGTV & Pinterest App; & wedding/party planning.
