Founded by Chris & Shayla Montgomery in 2014, Believe Pageant Consulting has been built to suit their clients from beginners to experienced. Chris has been instrumental in building character and success in youth for over 20 years from sports to church youth groups. A public speaker and photographer Chris has a way of communicating with kids to help them understand while having fun learning. Shayla's competitive nature and accomplishments in pageantry helps her relate to her girls with her recent and current pageant experiences. Shayla is currently the 2020 Miss Oregon Teen USA Queen and has been honored with capturing the first and currently only National - National American Miss State Queen National Title and National spokesmodel titles ever from Oregon in 2015, as well as 3 major state titles in only 5 years of competition. Shayla continues to compete and help girls develop winning skills with Chris who has coached her (as well as others) from the beginning. In only 5 years Believe Consulting clients have captured over 80 major State, National and International Title through NAM, USA, IJM, RIM, UNM and AAG.
Believe Consulting's team of consultants has expertise in all areas of pageantry including interview, introduction, public speaking, gown walk presentation as well as apparel selection. They Believe every girl has her gifts and build upon that foundation. Believe Consulting's fees are very reasonable in comparison to today's coaching standards. They feel that every family should be able to have a great service without being priced out of coaching. Believe Consulting's slogans are "we are a family" and "we believe in you" which showcases the purpose of their work.

Testimonies -

Believe Consulting is a family run pageant consulting business. Every member of the Mongomery household is involved in one aspect or another of the business. If you are looking for beginning stage presence you will be working with Chris the founder, if you are looking for advanced interview skills you will be working with national title holder Shayla, if you are looking for expert hair and makeup you will be working with Krystal, and lastly if your head is spinning from all the pageant commitments, rules, and cost you will receive the most amazing advise from Sheila followed by the most genuine hug. This family truly lives and breaths pageantry but even more than that, they live and breath people. You are family the moment you walk in the door. When I think of the Believe Consulting’s coaching philosophy words like kindness, honesty, integrity, and family come to mind. The coaches working for Believe Consulting are not afraid to deliver the hard truths but do it in such a way that is productive and inspiring to their clients. They always find a way to be uplifting but never ask/or expect the client to participate in pageants that are beyond their current skill or financial level. Coming from a sports background I have never understood why in the pageant world the coach that you have paid hundreds of dollars to, to train your child does not show up for the final competition. This is not the case with Believe Consulting. Once you sign up with Chris and his team they are with your child from start to finish. Offering not only words of encouragement to your child, reviewing training, photography, system knowledge, and always keeping the client and family abreast of any schedule or pageant changes throughout the weekend. They truly are full service. With Believe Consulting there is no “up sell.” They work to make every one of your hard earned dollars count in their training. They charge a more than fair price for their services and many times such as pageant weekend will continue to counsel and motivate your child at no additional cost. Not to mention the hundreds of photographs Believe Photography takes during the pageant and post at no additional charge to you.

Believe Pageant Consulting is very family oriented, and professional. They are not like a business they are very personal. And make sure you are ready for that stage! They BELIEVE in you! We love their whole family! You also gain friendships inside of the Believe pageant Consultant Family! They give you Quality over Quanity, providing you with excellent service. They have lots of knowledge and educate you with pageantry starting from the process of starting the pageant to what to do during pageant weekend. They always make sure that their client is ready, with calls, texts messages, FaceTimes, etc. all pageant weekend! With the help of Believe Pageant Consulting my daughter has placed 1st in the Jr. teen division at 13 years old, 2nd runner up, winner of casual wear modeling, and helped her achieve her goal of winning the Miss East Coast Preteen Title! We love Believe Pageant Consulting! June Chambers Mother of 2018 Miss East Coast Preteen Chelsea Chambers.

My youngest daughter Rhionna has been working with Chris, Shayla and Kristen at Believe Consulting for just a few short months so far and the benefits and results were immediate. From her first session with Chris for Personal Interview training and her first session with Shayla for Stage Presence and Pageant Walk development, she has improved and grown. The positive but firm guidance of these proven coaches has helped Rhionna raise her performance levels right along with her confidence and self esteem. After winning her first local crown in February of this year and then capturing the Oregon state crown in her age division in March, we knew we needed some help to get her prepared for Nationals in July. We began weekly sessions with Chris via FaceTime for personal development and interview; as well as weekly sessions with Shayla in person in the studio for stage walking and modeling routines. Rhionna did really well for her first National Pageant thanks to Team Believe and brought home not only the National Countess crown but National Photogenic and National Back Cover Model awards as well in the Jr Teen age division. We can’t imagine continuing our pageant experiences without Believe Consulting guiding and supporting not only Rhionna as a contestant and client but all of us as a family and a team. This is why we Believe!

Chris helps you with areas you didn’t even know you needed help on. He’s on top of everything and helps you reach all your goals. He really helped me a lot with one of my weaknesses which was political questions. Believe Counseling is the way to go hands down!

The coaches at Believe are experts who care about each of their clients. They have helped me improve 100% from the time I started working with them, which has led to me winning the National High-Point title for Regal Majesty Pageant and Washington National American Miss Jr. Teen. Believe takes care of their clients, giving them real skills not just for pageants but for life as well.

Believe is the real deal. They honestly care deeply about each client they have. They are very positive and supportive of whatever their clients' goals are. They are also supportive of the parents and helping them to know how to best help their child navigate through the pageant world. If there were more stars, I would be rating them higher.

I absolutely loved being coached by Believe Consulting, weather I was with Chris or Shayla. I learned and gained so many skills from them and so ever grateful. If I had a question I could reach out and they would respond. They helped write my personal intro and would fix it until I loved it. They truly care for you and want you to be successful not only in the Pageant but life to and walk away with something. Plus them being at the actual pageant and seeing them in person really helped me. I would recommend them in a heart beat to anyone looking to be successful at pageantry.

My daughter just recently started pageants but she has done nothing but excel with the help of the Believe coaches! She has become a state titleholder, earned a place at 2 national pageants, and she truly loves her sessions. Every week, it’s what she looks forward to doing, her pageant prep! If you’re looking for an amazing set of coaches, choose Believe! I guarantee you won’t regret the decision! We love being part of the Believe family!

The biggest goal for me in selecting a coach for my daughter was to find someone who could truly help her become the best version of herself and not try to fit her into a pageant mold. We found this with Chris and Believe Consulting. After just 5 sessions in preparation for a pageant I saw her truly transform in articulation and confidence. I know that as we continue to work with them she will always feel prepared to do her absolute best. #BelieveGirlsRock

I really wanted believe to coach Sherri this year at nationals but Chris was carrying in telling me that he already had a client in the age group. I appreciated his honesty and it happened to us before so I was relieved with his honesty. I can see how girls like to work with them. This year it will be our turn to be a part of the believe family. We admire them so much.

I'm pretty picky when it comes to my kids and my family had a run in with a pretty popular coach in the past who gave information to another client and broke our trust. Our daughter was a mess all weekend at the pageant. So when we heard of Believe we were still worried but that ended quickly. They are honest and straight forward and eventhough she learns she has a great time doing it. Lots of coaches coach alot of girls and it must be hard but believe treats each of them like they are the only one. From there her confidence elevated above and beyond our expectations.

My daughter worked with Shayla and Chris for only 5 sessions and went from not making top ten to 2nd runner up the next year at our state NAM pageant. That says it all! This year we are coming back to NAM and we have a coach who believes in our kid and doesn't play favorites, Abby needed that and we are believe family now forever. They are more than we could ask for and more?????

Chris & Shayla make a personal investment in each one of their clients, getting to know them and therefore being able to bring out the very best from each of them! They help them to play to their strengths, challenge them to strengthen their weaknesses and help them discover new talents and skills that they may not have known they had! They are good people that help these young ladies to reach their goals even beyond the Pageant. I highly recommend them to coach, guide and encourage your contestant. They have my love and respect.
