I’m 25 years young and a resident of Ponder, a small rural town right outside of Denton. I’m a graduate of Texas Woman’s University earning my first Bachelors in Fashion Design in 2012 and my second Bachelors in Criminal Justice in 2014. Previously working in private investigations, I’m currently transitioning into working as an escrow assistant to a Frisco based Real Estate attorney, as well as planning the launch of my fashion blog!
Winning the title of Miss Texas United States has already been a huge blessing! I plan to take my platform of Alzheimer’s Awareness and spread it all across the state of Texas. My passion for making this disease known came about in 2003 when my grandmother was diagnosed, in 2014 she lost her battle and I vowed to her that I would do everything in my power to use my voice for those who can no longer use their own. I have previously travelled to Washington D.C. and spread my story and asked for support throughout Capitol Hill. With the national pageant being held in D.C., I plan to go back to Capitol Hill and again ask for support from state representatives. In addition to my platform, I also have developed a school program reaching out to elementary aged students where I discuss anti bullying tactics which involve loving yourself, accepting others and embracing differences, I also lead those ideas into making the most out of life today for a brighter tomorrow. I have also worked with several other charities including DIFFA, Children’s Miracle Network, Susan G. Komen, MADD, and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, just to name a few.
When I’m not busy with work or volunteering, I LOVE travelling. I have been to 26 lovely states and 5 other countries! I have so much love for beaches and warm sun! This crown is going to take me places I never dreamed, and I can’t wait to make this state proud! I am so thrilled to share this journey with my Texas Sisters and cannot wait to see what this year has in store for me!
