Letter from the Director

Dear Candidate,

I am honored to accept the title of Pageant Director of the Miss Houston Pageant. As a proud titleholder of Miss Texas USA and Miss USA 2008, I clearly hold the world of pageants very dear to my heart. Indeed, it was the skills and social graces that I learnt over my years of preparation, that opened doors and carried me successfully through the opportunities that I was given, in my life after the crown.

Shortly after my year as Miss USA, I moved to Hollywood and began my career in the entertainment industry. I’ve since been cast in principle roles in the series ‘For Better Or For Worse’ on the Oprah Winfrey Network and TLC’s ‘Too Close To Home’ and can be seen starring in the major motion picture ‘Acrimony’, that hit recently hit theaters.

As I recently moved back to Houston with my husband to start our family, I am ecstatic about taking over the pageant. Throughout my entertainment career, I have gained access to resources in the fashion and beauty industry. I have since, also acquired my certification in Etiquette Consulting by the International Etiquette & Protocol Academy of London. These celebrity resources along with my formal training, fuel my passion to impart more than pageantry to the contestants.

I have hand-picked a couple of powerhouse trendsetters to complete our formidable team. Together, we plan to lead the young women of Houston and the state of Texas by large, into
a new era of pageantry. We will use this platform to educate, encourage and empower young women to be the best version of themselves in every area of life. We wish you all great success!

Welcome to Miss Houston Pageant 2019. Pageantry for the next generation…PAGEANTRY OF POWER!
