Pam is very passionate about what she does and is very motivating to get the girls in the pageant to do community service and give back and raise funds for the state and national charity and make a big impact in the community.
I am thrilled to be part of such a wonderful program. Pamela Cassiano-Curnel is a wonderful woman with a heart that is full of love, inclusion, and encouragement. I feel welcomed and appreciated. So far I have been amazed at the Mrs. Washington America culture. The director and her the wonderful staff make this such an enjoyable experience. The fact that so many contestants come back to competed again, is a testament to the sisterhood and joy of the experience. Pamela’s dedication is unrivaled. She deserves accolades for all she does for the Mrs. Washington America Pageant and for her contributions to the Victoria Siegel Foundation,
Being a part of the Mrs. Washington America System for the last 5 years has been such a great experience! Even my husband loves being a part and has made great friendships with many of the other husbands! Pamela Curnel and her husband, Dr. David Curnel go above and beyond to make sure everyone has the opportunity to shine and give back to their communities all year round. What I love most about being a local titleholder for Mrs. Washington America is that I have the ability to spend my year doing what I love, being a part of a sisterhood of amazing women and how we support and uplift each other. Its not even just during "pageant events" but it is spending the year celebrating birthdays and holidays together, going to lunch and sharing how our kids are growing, seeing our husbands get together and have "guy time" and so much more. This is the culture that our directors have built for us, we just happen to throw in a pageant weekend for fun! I love pageant weekend, the women who I compete along with are truly some of my best friends and everyone is so kind, supportive, helpful, and encouraging. I love that I get to share the stage with all of them and its because of the professional and positive atmosphere our directors provide. I am so thankful and proud to nominate the Curnel Family for all the hard work and dedication they have given so many women of Washington state for the last 27 years. I am so thankful I have not only Mrs. Pam, Mr. David and the entire Mrs Washington America staff as a part of my life. It will be a friendship I intend to have for many years to come!!!!
Pam Curnel has achieved something that very few pageant directors have achieved in their career, and also with their particular pageant. She has created not just a competition that occurs over the course of a weekend, only once a year. She has created an organization that women want to belong to and invest in all year round. Pam arranges countless events and opportunities for her contestants throughout the year prior to the actual pageant, including volunteer opportunities, workshops, parties, parades, fund raisers and fun charity events, just to name a few. None of these things are required, but nonetheless, every contestant wants to attend everything they can. The reason that every lady wants to get involved is because they have found something in this pageant that they cannot find anywhere else; camaraderie, the support of like minded women, encouragement, fun, friends and lots of laughter. There is nothing else like this pageant for married women in the state of Washington, and probably in the entire NW.
I have competed 3 times before winning this pageant. I am Mrs. Washington America 2018 and I can not begin to put into words how much I love this pageant and my directors they are the best and most amazing people that I have ever meet. They love me, spoil me and treat me and my family as though we are their family. Competing in this Pageant has brought forth so many opportunities to me and my family and I am so blessed to be their Queen. Trust me when I say this pageant will change your life!
