What makes you influential?
I have always followed my heart and my dreams and I have done it without stepping on others. I have achieved success while being myself and I think that speaks volumes about me as a woman and in my career.
What consists of the perfect beauty queen?
In one simple word. Genuine. I teach my girls to be themselves and KNOW who they are. I think that the judges will pick a genuine girl every time over the programmed or phony contestant.
With all of the pageant winners you have coached, what can you contribute to their success?
I hope that I have given them the boost of confidence that is needed to win a pageant and take them through life. Once I work with a girl or they are one of my titleholders they are part of my family and I treat them as such.
How does someone become a contestant for the Illinois Galaxy Pageant?
I am also directing Wisconsin Galaxy too!
It’s very easy…You can enter IL or WI Galaxy by mailing or emailing me your name, age, address and marital status. Fees can also be sent via mail or through paypal. Please visit www.illinoisgalaxy.com for more details.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I just had a baby girl a few months ago and she is my world. I would love to have 1-2 more children within the next 5 years. I also would like to continue with my consulting work and to see my state Galaxy pageants grow and prosper!
Do you have a quote or motto you live by, if so please share it with us.
“Go Big or Go Home!” I can’t tell you how many times I say this to my girls!
