What activities / organizations are you involved in?
Inside of rodeo, I am a member of the Newport Rodeo Association and carry the Pro-West flag and Canadian flag there. I have also carried flags for the Cheney PRCA Rodeo in 2009, the Omak Stampeede in 2009, 2010, and 2011, and the Davenprot Pro-West Rodeo in 2009. In 2012, I also had the amazing honor of carrying the American Flag at the Clayton Pro-West Rodeo. Outside of rodeo, I am a 4-H horse leader, a volunteer at the Little Buck Riding Series sponsored by Will Rogers Saddle Company for ages 3-11, and a continued advocate of Tough Enough to Wear Pink helping to raise money for Breast Cancer Research. I also help local young riders with fitting and showing skills and basic horsemanship skills.
Have you been a contestant in any other royalty contests?
Yes, have had the honor of representing three rodeo associations; in 2010 the Clayton Pee-Wee Rodeo as Princess, in 2011 the Newport Pro-West Rodeo Association as Queen, and in 2013 the Pend Oreille County Fair and Pro-West Rodeo as Queen. I have also competed in the Miss Teen Rodeo Washington Pageant in 2012 where I received 2nd Runner-Up, the Volunteer Award and the Knowledge Award. I competed in the Miss Pro-West Pageant in 2013 where I again received 2nd Runner-Up, the Speech Award and the People's Choice Award.
What are your future goals?
I am currently attending Spokane Falls Community College where I plan to graduate in June with my AA Transfer Degree in hopes of continuing on to Eastern Washington University where I will major in communications with an emphasis in public relations. Away from my studies, I hope to continue spending time in the saddle perfecting my barrel racing skills and learning to rope. I would also love to continue sharing my love for horses by eventually taking over as the horse superintendent for the Pend Oreille County Fair helping young 4-Her's learn the safety skills and basic horsemanship skills it takes to become one of the professionals they idolize and aspire to be.
Why would you like to become Miss Spokane Interstate Rodeo?
When you combine a sport with so much history, tradition and heritage and a city with just as much history, tradition and heritage you get the Spokane Interstate PRCA Rodeo; filled with champion cowboys and cowgirls, future generations watching the action on the edge of their seat and of course that legendary Spokane Thunder! As Miss Spokane Interstate Rodeo Queen I would have the honor of being a role model and sharing my love for the history, tradition and heritage of both rodeo and the beautiful Lilac City "with kids from 1 to 92". I would be privileged to be the spokeswoman for the Spokane Interstate PRCA Rodeo and promote our fabulous volunteers and sponsors who come together to put on a fantastic show every year in September and to share our little slice of heaven with Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana.
