“I want to become Miss Rodeo America because I want to be a spokeswoman for the sport of rodeo. I think it would be a fabulous experience to travel all around America, sharing my love and knowledge of rodeo while promoting interest in the sport. My background in communications, pageant experience in the Miss Maryland Organization, and horsemanship skills and rodeo knowledge, make the perfect foundation for me to be Miss Rodeo America 2015! I feel as though I am well-equipped to take on the responsibilities of Miss Rodeo America and perform the duties to the best of my ability. I enjoy public speaking, meeting and greeting fans, and educating people about my favorite sport – rodeo!”
