Bouchard was raised in Owensboro, Kentucky. She is the daughter of Michael and Amy Bouchard. She graduated from Daviess County High School in 2014.
After graduation, Bouchard enrolled at Western Kentucky University where she is pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Social Work. After graduating from college, she aspires to work with at-risk students as a Family Resource Coordinator.
Bouchard got her start in pageants at 13-years-old. After entering a couple of local pageants, she found herself in the Miss Kentucky County Fair System. She won the titles of Miss Lincoln County Fair 2015 and Miss Rowan County Fair 2016. While she was not able to capture the state title, the confidence she gained helped her take the leap to compete in the Miss Kentucky Organization.
Bouchard took her first shot at the Miss Kentucky crown in 2016 when she won the title of Miss Belle of Louisville. While she fell short of making the Top 11, she did win the Newcomer of the Year Award, Non-finalist Interview Award, Best Smile Award, an Advertising Scholarship and was 2nd runner-up for the Heather French Henry Quality of Life Award.
After racking up so much scholarship money on her first try, Bouchard competed for the Miss Kentucky crown the next year as Miss Horse Capital of the World. This time, she made the Top 11 and was a Program Book Advertising Scholarship Winner.
Bouchard came back for her third try at the Miss Kentucky title in 2018 as Miss Jefferson County. This time, the crown was hers. Bouchard won the title of Miss Kentucky 2018 on June 30th, 2018 at the Singletary Center for the Arts located in Lexington, Kentucky.
She will compete for the title of Miss America 2019 on September 9, 2018 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
