5-stars all around for this wonderful woman/coach/friend/mentor there is! If you are in the state of Mississippi and involved with pageantry, look no further than Sandra Strain as your coach. Going into pageants, I had NO idea what I was doing. After a few lessons with Sandra, I became a completely different woman. I communicated effectively, perfected my walk, and had more confidence going into Miss Magnolia State. I love this woman so much!!

My daughter won her first pageant with the expert skills of Sandra. She took the least experienced 13 y/o and taught her what she needed to win her Jr. Miss state title. Sandra is very patient and exceptionally kind and would recommend to anyone that needed to know the least to a seasoned pageant contestant. We can't wait to see her again for the next level!

I am so extremely proud to nominate Sandra Strain for Best Pageant Coach 2018. This is a woman that I believe any parent and/or guardian would be proud to have coach, and help with in developing their child for success. Not only is she extremely passionate about her job, but she lives what she teaches. Whether it is a random act of kindness to a stranger, or a coaching tip for one of her young ladies, Sandra Strain is a friend and mentor that all women can look up to and mirror for a lifetime. Sandra is not just a phenomenal pageant coach, but a beautiful woman, both inside and out. Her extensive experience and the pride she has for her job spill over and positively touch the lives of the families and young women she so admirably coaches.

Sandra is THE most compassionate, honest, knowledgeable & professional coach & person I know. She is the only coach I refer girls to. With Sandra, each girl will get the whole package, such as professional mock interviews, personable, hands on training, lots of one-on-one, as well as support & encouragement from peers, which is so important. I have been honored to watch Sandra grow as a coach and it is so exciting to see so many winners that have been fortunate enough to win under her tutelage and guidance.

I know of no one that takes a more active role with each young lady than Sandra Strain. She takes not only a professional interest in each one but also a personal interest. She is not only the best coach but the best cheerleader as well.

My daughter didn't grow up in the pageant world. However, a few months ago, she got interested in them. She entered a few local pageants and won them. One of the pageants she won, qualified her for a state pageant. At the state level, I felt like she could use some coaching. Sandra was highly recommended as the best coach in the south east. I reached out to her and had a conversation with her about my daughter. She suggested that she and my daughter meet for an initial consult. My daughter immediately fell in love with her. Sandra's enthusiasm, positive spirit and caring attitude for her clients is amazing. She has made such an impact on my daughter. I see huge improvements in my daughter's communication skills, vocabulary, confidence, poise, eye contact, walk/stance and the list goes on and on. We truly feel blessed that we met Sandra Strain. She is not only our coach, she is now our friend! By the way, my daughter came in 6th place in the state pageant competing against 36 other girls, most of whom had been trained for many years. Not too bad for a new contestant. Susannah Fielder, Flowood, MS

Sandra has worked with both of my daughters. My oldest participated in the local Distinguished Young Woman program and placed second alternate. My younger daughter is currently preparing for the state Outstanding Teen program. Sandra is always encouraging and positive, but also knowledgeable and works diligently in providing the best advice and guidance. I'm glad to have her "on our team" for my daughter to as prepared as possible to make this a positive experience.
