Amanda is an incredible pageant coach and I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to work with her at IJM California! She helped me perfect my walk and routine for both fun fashion and evening gown. With her guidance, I was able to take home the crown the next night! She has since continued to work with me on my journey to Internationals and is there to proactively give me the guidance and support I need. When you work with Amanda, you join the Fit For a Queen family and so it’s more than just a coach but really a friendship you need in your life!

We are very pleased with Amanda's interview coaching. Emily has come out of her shell and is a totally different kid after only a few months working with Amanda. She helps build confidence and finds the balance between having fun and working hard. I would also recommend her for Personal Introduction writing! Our intro scored very high at state!

Amanda is great. She has a lot of experience with multiple pageant systems such as IJM, UNM and NAM. My daughter, Madison, auditioned for NAM California this year. My husband and I are completely new to the pageant system. We later met Amanda at NAM California and saw one of her students take home the NAM California state title in the Princess division. My husband and I decided to hire Amanda to help our daughter succeed at NAM Nationalist. I am glad we did. We learned so much about the pageant circuit and system from her. Now, she is more than just a coach, she's like family.

My daughter had a great experience with Amanda both as a coach and as a hair and makeup artist. Amanda really helped my daughter relax so that she could present herself confidently to the judges for interview. Her hair and makeup skills for a photo shoot also made my daughter look amazing and she not only won Photogenic but the Regency International Teen title thanks to Amanda no doubt.

Amanda was so professional and at the same time friendly, made you feel like you were already a winner. She has a special nack for making you do and feel your very best. Not only when she's doing your makeup, but when she's coaching you as well. She will go out of her way to make sure you're prepared as can be for your competition.

Amanda has contributed countless hours to helping me become a better, more improved pageant girl. I am grateful for her friendship, and for the team she has with Fit for a Queen. Amanda's Mom Shirleen is a very special "bonus" to the time invested with Amanda, as she's become a good mentor and someone I feel comfortable being myself around and asking pageant advice from. I highly recommend Amanda and her team "Fit for a Queen" to all new contestants and old ?

My sister was coached by Amanda, and not only did she feel more confident in what she was doing, but she was able to win an award and took that confidence into her day-to-day life. Amanda is knowledgeable in what she teaches and is able to work with people of all age groups and experience levels. I would recommend Amanda to anyone who is learning for the 1st time, or would like some Award-winning tips to up their performance.

Amanda was a wonderful coach. It was my first pageant and she made sure I understood how everything worked and what to expect. I have some physical disabilities and she was patient and kind when working with them and made sure to consider them whenever choosing an outfit or routine. Even though I had never been through an interview like the one I got to enjoy in my pageant, with Amanda's leadership I was prepared and didn't even flinch when the questions flew in from both the right and left field. Her patience with me was wonderful, and she was always willing to work with both my work and school schedule. There was never a time I felt like I was in need of something more because I knew all I had to do was ask Amanda and I would know everything I needed to.

I met Amanda a few years ago through a pageant and we have remained great friends since then. I have seen her continue to work with and help the ladies that she coaches. She truly cares for each of her clients, wants the absolute best for them, and will go the ultimate distance to make sure that they are as prepared as they can be!

Ruby Mae has had Amanda as her h/m & pageant coach for almost 2 years now and she is just wonderful! I can hand Ruby Mae off to her and know she’ll look amazing for all her pageants and photo shoots. I never need to worry about what style she’ll choose. And Ruby Mae just loves her coaching sessions with Miss Amanda! She’s become more like family than just a coach. The whole team at Fit for a Queen is so wonderful.

My daughter worked with Amanda for over a year. She learned so much. They had an amazing relationship. She was extremely patient and flexible with schedules. She took the time to make sure that pageant days went smoothly and stress free. Even though we no longer work together we still have an amazing relationship and I would recommend Amanda to anyone looking for a coach

As a parent who has paid for coaching, you're getting a lot more than you pay for. Behind the scenes (outside of lessons) Amanda is constantly writing, shopping for attire, and looking up the best resources for her girls. To say you're getting more than you pay for, is actually an understatement. She will drive to you for alterations, watch your dance lessons to make sure you know what to practice, will refer you to other specialists and will buy each and everyone one of her girls a birthday and Christmas present. Even for her girls out of state, she will help you shop for a dress over Skype/facetime and constantly text the moms during competitions asking for updates. She literally covers all aspects of pageants from your head to your toes, even I sometimes end up giving the girls manicures on pageant weekend, since I was a nail technician, all so the girls are 100% ready to take the stage. What is most important, is that when her students favorite color is "yellow" she doesn't tell them "no its pink" she says "why is it yellow? Lets talk about it!" She helps each girl show her personality in everything they do.

Amanda is one of the hardest working coaches in the country. She is extremely flexible with clients schedules and will take time out of her personal life to answer any and all questions. She approaches each girl differently and really makes their experience personalized. Seeing her work, I can tell she makes an impact on each client. She's aweaome!

We LOVE “Fit for a Queen” I met Amanda in 2016 & I loved her honesty & advice. We used her for nationals that year. Our daughter’s judges score were much higher during nationals & the following year at state. She’s kind & loving with all of her clients & parents. I loved the way she critique her clients. Never putting anyone down. ALWAYS lifting them up! I would recommend her to everyone!

Although her coaching strategies aren't always what people would consider "normal," they are affective and memorable to her students. I have seen her students compete and win. The first thing her student did after winning her state title, was look at Amanda and yelled, "I did it," not her mom but her coach Amanda. She builds a connection with her students and will always be there for them to hype them up. In addition, whenever a student texts her she'll drop everything to help them out. She is not just a coach, she is family.
