In 2018, Parker Sanchez earned her first international title as Mrs. Universal 2018, after previously holding the title of Mrs. USA Universal. Mrs./Ms. Universal Pageants were not Parker's first international pageant - she was crowned Mrs. New Jersey International 2017 and represented the state at Teen/Miss/Mrs. International pageant in 2017. Previously she has held the title of Mrs. Petite America 2010, representing NJ at the national pageant, and Mrs. New Jersey America 2008.
Parker, who grew up in New York City, now lives in a small farming community where she says “deer outnumber people.” She worked for much of her life as a professional ballroom dancer, but now focuses on raising her two young children.
Parker is determined to make the world a better place by volunteering in her and other communities. She uses this volunteer spirit to spread awareness for her platform of Dignity for Refugees. She is an Ambassador and Advisor for The Unmentionables, also serving in the field in Greece. She is currently planning another overseas distribution trip with Carry the Future.
