Taci’s favorite sport is rodeo and started competing in barrels when she was a little girl on her Shetland pony.

Taci is active in the Cowgirls Historical Foundation where she volunteers as a special guest in many community and charitable events.
“While some little girls dreamed of becoming a rodeo star through barrel racing or other events. All I ever wanted was to be the queen of the rodeo. I’d secretly race around the arena and wave to my make believe audience. I fell in love with the idea at a very young age. I have competed and worked to become a rodeo queen since I could ever remember. I want to serve as Miss Rodeo America, because I am proud to be a cowgirl. For me, it’s truly about giving back everything that “being a rodeo queen” has done for me. I want to inspire our youth to accomplish their dreams; I want to help grow an understanding of what a rodeo queen is and why the iconic rodeo queen is so important. I simply want to give back all that I have to what the western lifestyle has given me.”
