It has been an honor to have work with Erika for the past four incredible years. She has been there for me and my family every step of the way and I’m so grateful to have her in my life. I wouldn’t be the woman I am today without her. She believed in me even moments when I did not believe in myself. Erika is not only my coach/mentor but she is my family. I admire her and hope to be half as amazing as her one day. Thank you Erika and Pageant Prep!! xoxo

Pageant Prep is outstanding. With the help of Erika, I was able to win Miss Massachusetts Teen USA in 2014. She contributed significantly to my confidence throughout the entire pageant. I learned valuable interview skills and enhanced my ability to walk the runway. Erika even called me the day before the pageant to help me prepare mentally. I’ll be back to train with her again someday! 10/10 recommend

Pageant Prep provides everything a contestant should look for in a coach- one that provides knowledge, encouragement, and makes you feel prepared for any interview room! Erika & Amy are a great duo. The two prepared me to feel so comfortable walking into my very first competition as if I had done this all before. The skills I have learned from Pageant Prep has not only made me successful in competing but a strong candidate in any interview room. My interview skills alone has allowed me to get into an extremely competitive graduate program to accepting my very first professional job!

I am FOREVER thankful that I began working with PageantPrep for the first time in 2015 because they have shaped me into who I am today; on and off the stage! Nothing is greater than feeling so confident walking into the pageant interview room with no worries, knowing that you have been prepped by the best. PageantPrep turned a once scary interview process into my now favorite competition during pageant weekend!! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to Erika & Amy at PageantPrep for everything that you do!

Erika is not only an amazing coach, but she has become a friend as well. Upon my first pageant (Miss RI's Outstanding Teen in 2011), I went into the interview convinced that it was actually just a conversation, like you are often told. I walked out of my interview knowing that I had been mistaken and would have to learn how to interview for my second attempt. In 2012, I competed again, winning all three prelims and going on to place Top 5 in interview at Miss America's Outstanding Teen. The girl who didn't know the first thing about public speaking and interview skills, coming from little Rhody, was top 5 among 53 contestants at a national pageant just one year later. I recently won the title of Miss Rhode Island 2018 for the Miss America Organization with Erika's help, and spent many hours with her this summer preparing for Miss America. She has been one of my greatest supports for the past 6 years. I even interned with her in high school when she was working as a Supreme Court judge. She is committed to helping her clients better themselves in more than just the pageant world. Further, I am convinced that my interview skills helped me to get accepted to Brown University in 2013, because my college interview went extremely well. She is a mentor, a coach, a support system, and a friend. Thank you, Erika, for helping to make me the person I am today.

I have worked with PageantPrep for five years now, and every day, I realize ways that I am grateful for Erika. When I tell people I am going to an appointment at my pageant coach, I always feel inclined to inform them how Erika is much more than that- she is a friend; a confidant, always ready with a laugh and meaningful advice. She is always ready to jump into competition with me, whether it is one year or one month in advance. Erika is so knowledgable about everything surrounding pageantry, from how to answer tough current event questions, to how to get the perfect swimsuit walk. Always professional, Erika knows how to manage the line between client and friend. My overall experience with her has been more than wonderful, and I cherish my time with PageantPrep.
