Pageants have helped shaped the woman Mary has become. Fascinated by the sparkling confidence of pageant titleholders, Mary entered a pageant on a whim at the age of 19. She placed 2nd runner up and was hooked from there! Realizing her natural talent in this arena, she decided to delve deep into all aspects of pageants. Mary trained extensively to prepare for the title of Miss Minnesota and after four years of hard work, she was crowned Miss Minnesota International 2011. She has also participated in, volunteered for, and judged countless pageants.
Although pageants are fun and glamorous- there is so much more value to them. The journey to become a titleholder, a role-model, a Queen, will change who you are as a person. Pageant competitors are confident, motivated, involved individuals who strive to better themselves and their world. Pageants can build self-esteem, poise, communication skills, and drive.
Mary's platform/mission through her pageant career, and to this day, is to develop self-esteem in young woman. Through working with Girl Scouts, the Dove Movement for Self-Esteem, speaking to community organizations, holding self-esteem workshops, teaching dance, and pageant training, she strives to help girls realize their full potential.
Mary loves sharing her passion of positive pageantry with others. Mary specializes in helping young women discover how fun and challenging pageants can be. With her experience teaching dance for all ages, it is natural for Mary to coach youth in their pageant endeavors.
