Teri Brown-Walker's passion for pageantry and her commitment is second to none. Having watched her production several times, I can say she is most professional about all aspects of pageantry. That professionalism is exhibited in how she prepares the contestants; in how she plans and executes the event itself; and in the followup. After the pageant, Teri gives her queens exposure in print, on TV, and at various events. Teri's personality is endearing which is obvious by the way her contestants seek her out and respect her. The parents of the younger contestants comment on how grateful they are to Teri for giving their daughters this opportunity to build confidence and self-esteem which will help them be successful in the future. As enthusiastic as Teri is about pageantry, she will no doubt continue to contribute her skills and expertise to the industry, but she would be an excellent State Director.
Teri Walker brings amazing expertise, energy and passion for the empowerment of women to the pageant arena. Her love of competition and ability to inspire draws out the shyest of contestants as they learn to own their Queendom. With Teri as Director, all contestants walk away as winners.
Ms Teri Walker is the best Pageant Director in the world!!! When my daughter Carla mentioned that she was interested in competing in pageants, I was very leery. In my research I had a glimpse of what pageantry could be and I didn’t want my daughter involved. When we met Miss Teri my mind was changed. Carla has competed with Miss Teri and has thoroughly enjoyed the experience as have I. Miss Teri is always professional, an excellent communicator, very focused, on point, and a stickler for detail. Aside from all of these positive qualities she’s also very very protective of girls. We are forever supporters of pageantry under the direction of and Teri!!! ??
It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to share details about Mrs. Teri Brown-Walker. Mrs. Teri is so personable with everyone.

Mrs. Brown-Walker has a way of seeing through a nervousness while suggesting ways to open a contestants eyes to their inner and outer beauty. Mrs. Brown-Walker you are truly appreciated and a refreshing addition in such a competitive arena. Thank you for all that you do!
OMGracious Teri Brown-Walker is one of the BEST State Directors in the pageantry world. I have volunteered at all of her pageants and plan to volunteer at her upcoming April 4th pageant in Lancaster, PA. If you are looking for a pageant director who is authentic and treats you like a queen, I highly recommend Pageant Director Teri!
Teri Brown-Walker is very deserving of this honor. Her passion, commitment and thought leadership deliver results. Teri always has a positive attitude, works well under pressure and is detail oriented. Pageants that she directs are top-notched that inspire women of all ages. She is commended for a job very well done.
I have known this director for several years and she has been very helpful and professional. I really love that she cares about her titleholders and support them as much as possible. Great organizational skills and very experienced with pageant production as well. Teri always find new events to promote her queens and give them many opportunities to represent the system and develop their platform. I really recommend Teri as pageant Director.
I am nominating Teri Brown-Walker as Pageant Director of the year because of her commitment to be the best Director in the pageant community. Teri is a hardworking, dedicated pageant director who is not only great at coordinating, organizing and ensuring her pageants are successful, but she also has a tremendous passion for working with the contestants, judges, and anyone involved from the start to the crowning. I really admire her tenacity and her heart for helping others achieve their goals, and that she is pursuing not only what she loves, but what she is great at doing. She is most deserving of being Pageant Director of the Year 2019.
Working with a director like Teri Brown-Walker is like being adopted into a family. She treats every titleholder like a daughter, from getting us amazing appearances, getting us opportunities to further us along in our future endeavors, and helping us stay focused and prepped for our national competition with the best coaches and her guidance as well. She's always there to help build our confidence back up when we need it the most. I feel so honored to call her my director. She goes above and beyond for all of her girls and it's a blessing.
I had the privilege to judge a pageant lead by Mrs. Teri Brown-Walker and was completely impressed with her warm approach with the contestants, knowledge of the industry and ability to manage the crowd’s expectations of a great show that yield pure elegance and power. Mrs. Brown-Walker is a leader in this industry because of her tenacity to see the value of women as leaders and help facilitate contestants to see the greater good in pageantry through community service, character building and networking for career greatness. She is dynamic and should be awarded Pageant Director of the year because there are no other women in this industry that have compassion for women the way she does because of having a pure spirit and clean heart. My daughter Kaia - was awarded the opportunity to become Miss Teen Baltimore under her leadership and we are both grateful for the opportunity. Lastly, her representation on women is a true platform and testament to why women like her needs to continue to be recognized so that others can follow in her path of greatness! Nisa Edwards
Teri is definitely a Beast at what she does! Get integrity and professionalism speaks for itself! She's a one of a kind director that selflessly gives her all no matter what. She's genuine and authentic in everything she does. There's no other that can compare to what a Director should look like!
Director Teri is one of the most genuine Pageant Directors out here. Because of her I had never thought about competing in a pageant let alone take over a mini Christmas pageant. She made my first experience (even though I didn't place) an experience that I would never forget. She puts her heart and soul into making it a memorable experience for everyone. From her encouragement, I have started my own mini Christmas pageant I hope to one day be the kind of Director she is. I love you Director Teri!
One of the smartest, kindest and hardworking women I know. She takes care of her queens like they are her children. A WONDERFUL director to have and a great friend to all.
Teri is an amazing director! Her ability to coach and mentor others is remarkable. Teri truly believes in helping others to realize the beauty in themselves. It is evident that this is Teri’s passion as it shows that her actions and belief in others come straight from the heart!
Teri Brown Walker is my favorite pageant director. I love her professionalism, sweet and kind. She is always available to answer the queen questions and support us with any appearance needs. I had such a great time working with Teri Brown Walker while I was promoting the Mrs. DC united state 2018 and Mrs. Cosmos DC pageant. I would love to work with her again!
Inspirational is what Teri has been for me. Have had the opportunity to assist in working with her with pageants and in the corporate world. Teri has shown me the beauty in working in the pageant world and have met so many amazing ladies. Does not matter what challenges you are facing and feeling, Teri always provides a positive outlook and resolution to support you in overcoming those challenges. A true, genuine professional and well rounded Pageant Director
I was Director Teri's first Jr. Miss Maryland Cosmos 2018. She is by far the best pageant director I have worked with !! Very professional, kind and inspiring.
Excellent leadership, great organization. I have worked under Teri in both a professional capacity in staffing and recruiting and as an assistant with her pageants and she is nothing short of amazing! Ensures that everyone is treated fairly, things are organized, staff feels valued. I cannot say enough about how she goes above and beyond to ensure everyone has what they need to be successful.
I've worked under Teri Brown-Walker's leadership in corporate America and from what I have witnessed, she treats her queens the exact same way she treated her employees - always hands-on and with love and kindness. For Teri, pageantry is truly her passion and I wish her much continued success. She also produces the best pageants I've ever seen!
I competed in my very first pageant DC/Maryland United States under Director Teri, although I didn't win, I will never forget her encouraging words to me to not give up and that she believes in me.
I LOVE Director Teri! I will always be thankful for her giving me my first opportunity to become her very first intern graphic designer. What most don't know is that she always came out of her own pocket to make sure I always got paid and supplemented her queens fees ensuring that as a college student that I had money and her titleholders overall cost were low. Thank you Director Teri for being an inspiration to so many.
