Like many of you I am many things but most importantly I am a mother , grandaughter, friend, artist and pageant queen:)
My greatest success in life are my children Desiree 26 and Trevor 28
Trevor and his new bride Alyssa :)
"Everything you've ever dreamed of is on the other side of fear."
My Angel Boy and now son Darian (9) who came to me as a baby needing a family and stole my heart. I would have never thought at my then age of 40 I would ever want to raise another child but God had different plans. PROUD to be called mom and loved by him!
My 92 year young grandmother who has always loved me and believed in me. I was adopted at birth and she immediately treated me unconditionally as her own. I am who I am from the love of her and my late grandfather.
As an artist and as a friend my business had Blessed me with many amazing women added to my life. You will enter as a stranger but you will leave as a friend :) Jill was one of my first clients in 2003 and I adore her.
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 3 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!
