Serving as an ambassador for KSU through the K-State Singer Show Choir, Student Foundation Board, Student Alumni Board, and Greek Ambassadors, I have taken a substantial role in recruiting potential students to K-State, keeping alumni engaged on campus, and participated in university fundraising. I was named 4th RU in 2010 Miss Kansas and a preliminary talent winner. I had a lead role in “Guys & Dolls”, named Best High School Musical in Kansas by USA Weekend magazine.
All of my ancestral lines boast Kansas pioneers; both parents’ families arrived in central Kansas in the 1870’s, making me a seventh generation Kansan. Twice I have assisted in clean-ups after tornadoes hit Kansas towns.

Why I should be Miss Kansas:
Having participated in the 2010 Miss Kansas pageant as a 20 year old, I am returning two years later more mature, more qualified, with more experiences under my belt. My time spent in Pratt learning from the board members, observing how the program benefits young women, and gaining financial aid for college, hooked me into the Miss America system and made me a believer. For four years I have promoted Kansas State University in a number of ambassador roles, preparing me to represent the MAO to the best of my ability. I matured greatly during my internship at Koch Industries. Living on my own for the first time, working 40 hours a week, and presenting myself professionally at one of the largest, most successful private companies in the world broadened my perspective and gave me powerful skills to use in the job of Miss Kansas. In closing, I truly feel at this point in my life, I emulate the four points of the MAO crown. My work towards scholastic achievement, my dedication to serving my university and community, my awareness of my own sense of style, and my endeavors to maintain success in all that I do make me the perfect candidate for the job of Miss Kansas. I am excited, honored, and anxious to serve Kansas in this role.
