Baylee Drezek, a Davenport native, has a deep-rooted passion for charity and helping children. Her experiences working with kids on numerous mission trips, helping with special needs events, and being involved in her church as a youth mentor have inspired her to pursue a bigger platform for change as Miss Iowa USA.
Baylee is currently in college obtaining her bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing. Her dream is to one day open her own daycare facility. Aside from aspiring to own her own business, Baylee has worked as a model for numerous years. Her professional experiences include print, runway, high fashion, and commercial modeling. Both endeavors play an important role in her life.
In her spare time, Baylee likes to read, exercise, and watch football. She also enjoys traveling to new places and loves being adventurous in her travels. Baylee once free fell 855 ft. off the Stratosphere building on a trip in Las Vegas, and hiked through the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee.
Baylee loves spending time with her family, and cherishes the memories with her twin sister and younger brother. “My family and I have always been a very close bunch, and we love to play competitive games together. Our favorite game to play is poker (yes poker); we love the strategic nature of the game.”
The experience and confidence she gained after placing top 5 in Miss Iowa Teen USA in back to back years motivated her on the road to Miss Iowa USA and the Miss USA stage. Now, as Miss Iowa USA, she plans to take on every opportunity she can and give back as much as possible to her community. “I am so grateful to be in this position, and I look forward to representing the state of Iowa.”
