My name is Ashleigh Pates, I am a 25 year old Dental Hygiene student who has a passion for helping others live a healthy lifestyle to prevent disease. Being one of the first in my family to not only attend college but move out of the state right out of high school really inspired me to do more in my life. In 2011, I moved from Washington State to California and participated in my first pageant and fell in love. After losing my papa to cancer in 2014, I knew what my platform was going to be and I was ready to share my passion of living a healthy lifestyle with others.
When I am not studying, I love hiking, photography, working out, traveling, and spending time with my family in Washington.
