I'm interested in working with young women who want to take ownership of who they are through a process of self-evaluation, hard work, and honesty. Define your mission and brand, and maximize your potential, not only in the pageant world, but for the overall enhancement of your life. It is never my goal to fit you into a mold. Successful pageant contestants embrace their unique strengths, are purpose driven and excel as the best possible version of themselves.

With residencies in New York and Ohio, I am able to reach a wide range of women in various locations. Pageant coaching in New York is available during the week and on weekends.

Vocal Talent Development
I help young women develop vocal talent routines that showcase their unique talents and vocal style. Whether it's polishing an existing routine or starting from scratch, I can help you develop a talent presentation you can feel proud of. Some women come to me with years of vocal training behind them and others come to me at the beginning of their journey. Whatever your level of study, we'll work together on your technique and stage presence and choose material that excites you!
