I entered my first pageant in 2012 as the first Ms Lynnwood Plus America in order to use the title and crown to shine a light on something very close to my heart. I suffered with bulimia from a young teen until 30 trying to fit into the medias idea of beauty. I wanted to be able to have in impact on young girls and tell my story and the crown opened many doors to be able to do that. Of course I like to be the best in anything I do so I am proud of my success in pageantry. I have held one city, 3 State and 4 National titles since 2012 along with National wins of photogenic, cover girl, portfolio and spirit of pageantry. BUT MOST importantly I am proud of being able to empower young girls and women to love themselves AS IS!
