Although I have only competed twice in my pageantry journey so far, it is a no-brainer that Jillian is the best of the best. I met Jillian through a pageant I competed in two years ago, in which she was my director. We immediately hit it off because of her genuine, kind, caring, and generous personality. She helped me every step of the way and made me feel completely at ease coming back into the pageant world after six years. Jillian even called me after the pageant to go over my strengths and weaknesses, and immediately encouraged me to keep competing. Being fairly new to the pageant world, Jillian has been my guardian angel since then. She has consistently vocalized her belief in me, to the point where she has pushed me many times to compete again. If it was not for her, I would not be competing in an upcoming pageant in a few months. She was the gentle, yet powerful push I needed to realize my potential. When I decided to compete in my upcoming pageant, I did not think twice about asking her to be my coach. As my coach, Jillian has gone above and beyond. She utilizes her passion for pageantry, numerous outstanding accomplishments, and confidence in me to carefully craft our 1-on-1 coaching sessions. She knows just how to articulate my strengths and weaknesses to help me stay humble and hopeful. Outside of our sessions, Jillian is available at my beck and call - and did I mention that she is a wife, mother of three, daughter, aunt, and SO much more? Thanks to Jillian, I know in my heart that I will be more than ready to hit the stage again in a few months. In the past two years I have known her, she has become the closest thing I have to a big sister. Jillian will always be my pageant coach moving forward. If you are in search of a coach, look no more. The best of the best is Jillian Spano of Next Paige Productions, LLC.

I just want to say thank you to Jillian for all she has done for me. I am what you would call the complete opposite of a pageant woman. I am a tomboy, I enjoy heavy lifting and I am an athlete who opts for flats more than heels. I decided with less than 2 months to prepare to compete in the Miss NJ USA pageant. Which as many know is one of the biggest and most challenging pageants to compete in. Jillian was my saving grace as she helped me find cheaper alternatives to fabulous gowns and swimsuits. She helped me stay on budget when it came to shopping, and no matter when or where I had a question Jillian would always give me the best answer. I felt completely prepared when I competed for the pageant weekend. At the Miss NJ USA pageant we had 108 women compete, dropping down to a mere top 20 for semi finals. I made the semi finals on my very first pageant and I know I would have never been able to do so without Jillian’s help. Although, for now this might be my last pageant experience I would say it was one of the best. Jillian not only helped me conquer a fear of pageants, but helped me develop my self and learn what it means to be a queen, and how I can use my platform to help others. Jillian is truly an amazing individual with a gift, there is no one better to help you on your pageant journey.

It was such a pleasure to work and still be working with Next Paige production (Jillian). I stepped out of my comfort zone last year and did my first pageant. I had to do something for me. Without Jillian I would have never been able to get first runner up in the Ms. New Jersey for America pageant. I am currently still working with her for my next pageant in March!!!

I appreciate those who give back to Pageantry on multiple platforms. That is what Jillian does and continues to do. For me, a coach knows what it's like to be in my shoes because she has walked in them herself. She is current on where pageantry is going and what's important in the system I am competing with. My nomination vote is here.

Jill had my daughter as a client. She was new to the world of pageants and we heard about Jillian from a friend. She needed a lot of work and Jillian was not shy to jump right in. My daughter was very shy and nervous but Jillian built her confidence right away. With confidence her passion for pageantry grew. Jill took her time and cared about my daughter. We have heard that many coaches won’t even talk to you if your not “on the clock”. Not Jill, she answered messages without question and that showed a lot. If you are new to pageantry or a veteran, Jillian has a ton to offer. Thank you Jill. My daughter has all the confidence in the world thanks to you!

I only worked with Jillian for a short period of time, but I grew in so many different ways. I never felt any more prepared for an interview until after working with Jillian. I learned how to exude confidence and poise throughout all aspects of competition. I highly recommend her! I am sure I will be working with her in the future.

Jillian at Next Paige Productions is a Queen maker! She came into my daughter's life and helped her to blossom into a beautiful queen grounded in humility and service and bursting with confidence and influence. She has a gift of recognizing strengths and using them to point her contestants in the right direction. Coached by Jillian, my daughter won a state title in her first pageant and made it to the finals in the Miss Pre-teen NJ United States pageant 2018. We utilized Jillian's services for consulting, walking, interview and wardrobe, and we are excited to continue this year as my daughter competes for Miss Jr. High School America 2020. Next Paige Productions has introduced us to the best in photographers, hair & makeup and boutiques for shopping. They have provided wonderful connections and opportunities for service, friendships and appearances. Always a text away, our consulting has become more of a friendship, where you know that you are always going to be supported and get the best advice.

Thank you alone is not enough to express my gratitude for Jillian. As a mom of twins, I struggled immensely getting over "mom body" and the idea of being a "normal" person again. In an effort to feel normal, I joined my very first pageant with only about 2 months to prepare. This was not an issue for Jillian. Her clear and consistent direction helped keep me focused and on task. There was never a second that went by that she allowed me to be self doubting, or negative. Her positive personality in conjunction with years of experience in pageantry made her in my opinion my best option. I am happy to say that not only did this journey, with Jillian's help, help me find myself and how strong I am but put me in the winners circle at my VERY FIRST pageant as 4th runner up.
