"As a designer who became Miss America to champion veterans issues... I have spent over 20 years on the most unique path! Stepping into the uncomfortable zone is my forte and I want to encourage all of you to be bold and step into a new day! As you read more about my exhilarating journey, you'll also see lots of creativity in products I've designed, collaborations with corporations and media tips."
As a designer, I am a natural problem solver. As a Girl Scout Gold Award recipient...I love community engagement and volunteering.
Throughout my life I have been an advocate for our nation's veterans. As the daughter of a Vietnam Veteran, It have been my passion to assist and honor those who have served and sacrificed for our country.
I have also grown a passion for preservation...
FUN FACT: I am from the same areas in Kentucky as Rosemary Clooney! My grandfather founded both Augusta, KY & Middletown, KY in 1796. Both of these fun facts have led to a passion to help preserve history in those areas. In Augusta, KY, we established the Rosemary Clooney House which houses the famous White Christmas Collection and more! In Middletown, we are working with the Floyds Fork Conservancy to save Floyds Fork and a historic farm along Aiken Road!
My husband is a Prostate Cancer Survivor. In 2004, we established the Kentucky Prostate Cancer Coalition which provides FREE prostate cancer screenings at the KY State Fair.
