Mrs. Idaho's Power of Progress

Mrs. Idaho's Power of Progress

What inspired you to enter the “Mrs. American” pageant? I have been participating in this pageant over the last 16 years and initially I loved it because of the process of personal growth I experienced.  Over time, I realized that I loved the person I was becoming through pageantry and that I could use my experiences to help and serve others. It also has really been a catalyst for me to develop my platform “The Power of Progress: Transforming All Aspects of Health Through Simple Daily Routines”.  

What does being “Mrs. Idaho American” mean to you? It is such a privilege to hold the title of “Mrs. Idaho American 2022” and the increased visibility that gives me to be able to share my message about the importance of improving every aspect of health. I feel my years of competition have prepared me for the responsibility of representing the women of Idaho and using my experiences to serve. 

What are you most passionate about? I am passionate about transforming health! At a really low point personally, after I lost my mother to suicide, I was determined to change and become healthier in every area of my life and help others do the same. I used the process of implementing simple daily routines and was able to make some big personal changes. Making progress toward healthy goals gives us feelings of well-being. That’s the true “Power of Progress”! It really is vital to our well-being to create those feelings through healthy changes.  As a published author, speaker, and school counselor I am able to help others understand the importance of healthy change, and give them some simple tools to become healthier. 

What brings you joy? Spending time with my family, my work as a School Counselor, organizing spaces, hanging out with friends, fresh air and sunshine, helping others through teaching my workshop, “The Power of Progress: Transforming All Aspects of Health Through Simple Daily Routines”.  

How do you inspire women to stand up, stand out, and stand together in your life? I teach a workshop based on my platform “The Power of Progress” that details how to know yourself better, how to identify your purpose, how to narrow down and set healthy goals, and how to build strategies and routines to accomplish those goals. These steps can empower women and help them transform their lives in all areas of health. And strong healthy women become leaders who inspire everyone around them. 

What is your favorite StansOut product? I absolutely adore the Makeup blending sponge! It's so much betterthan any sponge I've used! It can be used wet or dry, it's it covers a lot of area fast, and its super soft so you feel like you are being gentle on your face! I use it for blending my foundation and concealer, applying powder, ad even setting my makeup. I keep several of these little beauties stashed around the house!

What are you most looking forward to as you represent Idaho on the national stage? Getting to know women from all across the country who are giving so much service to their families, communities, and states! They are such a force for good in the world and so inspiring!  And I will be able to share with even more people the importance of making healthy changes and the process that has helped me transform all aspects of my life.
